“There were only portions of the roof – the top layer, or membrane – that were damaged,” he said. “I want to emphasize there are several layers.”
The damaged area was over the second floor above the science wing of high school.
“We’re working with the roof people to get it secured and insurance adjusters are working on it now,” he added. “We should be okay to go for classes.” Fries didn’t consider it to be major damage, noting it was similar to having shingles blowing off a roof.
