Alta-Aurelia High School will be closed Monday


Damage from the storm will be keeping some students home from school on Monday.

Superintendent of the Alta-Aurelia Community School, Lynn Evans, said the high school will be closed because it will allow for more time to assess the damage after a tornado went right over the school.

One of the main concerns is the heating and cooling units that were displaced from the roof. Gaps were sealed up, so water wouldn't leak in.

But, there are still mangled gas lines and holes in the windows.

"The structure, where the high school kids are in, is where the brunt of the storm hit and we're having a structural engineer come in tomorrow and walk the facility with me to assure me that everything's safe on that end of the building," Evans said.

Middle and elementary school will go on as planned tomorrow.

Evans said he plans for high school students to be back in class Tuesday. KTIV will keep you updated with the latest information.
