Jasper School Officials Looking Over Roof Damage

Last updated on Wednesday, May 4, 2011

(JASPER, IN) - Greater Jasper School officials are still looking over damage caused by the collapse of the gym roof at the high school.

Assistant Superintendent Mike Hile says they've met with architectural engineers, insurance adjustors and the state fire marshal to see what can be done about the damage.

The greater jasper school board will likely meet next week to look over recommendations.

Hile says the collapse was likely due to high winds the last few weeks and heavy rainfall.

The collapse also damaged the adjacent cafeteria, which is still off limits.

School officials have set up cafeteria tables in a hallway to serve students.

The May 27th graduation will also be moved, but a site has not yet been picked.

Classes were cancelled on Monday and Tuesday, but students returned on Wednesday.
