CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — Students at Crater High School will not have to report back to school until Tuesday as the clean up continues after a water main break earlier this week.
In total, eleven classrooms were affected, five of which may be out of service for up to two months. In the mean time, teachers of those classrooms will have to make the best of other classrooms and part of the library. Schools officials say the building has had changes to the flooring over the years, which has complicated the process.
“There are several layers of flooring underneath that area, a couple of old gym floors, carpet, linoleum, tiles and the water came down in there and filled it up and the whole thing has to be removed now,” said Crater High School Principal Bob King
School officials say they are hoping to bring in two modular classrooms to help create space for all classes.
