Roofing Update

With the move to the new section of the roof, we have moved one classroom to another area because of the noise of the fans.  There was some burning smell from wood cutting on the third floor which cleared quickly once the workers were aware.  The team was able to work on Saturday which was great.  Unfortunately they will not be able to work today because of the rain.
