CHS storm damage update

Repairs have begun at the Corning High School after a May 29 storm blew the roof off a wing of the building. Superintendent Kellee Smith explains that repairs to the roof have been slow due to the rain; however, progress is being made after a few dry days. “Many things had to take place before repairs could begin,” the superintendent said. “Insurance adjusters, structural engineers, and construction consultants had to visit and make their individual assessments. Quotes had to be approved through the insurance, and materials had to be ordered and delivered. Finally, we now have a roofing crew on site and the new roof should be complete in a couple of weeks.” Smith states that the district already has approval for flooring, lights, and ceiling work and work will begin on the interior as soon as the roof is finished. “Right now, it is a waiting game. Hopefully, the rain will stay away so work can progress as planned.”
