This picture was taken (not by me) last night, at the school Wyatt would be attending if he were in public school. Nobody was hurt, as it happened at night. Don't know the extent of the damage yet, but I doubt anyone will be attending there for the rest of this school year.
Don't think for a moment that I'm gloating about what happened. Many of our good friends are affected.
I am thankful, however, that we're not. :0)
The school was nearing the end of seismic retrofitting and there is speculation that welders were on the roof until 10:30 the night before, and may have inadvertently caused the fire. I don't know.
Thankfully it was at night and nobody was there, so nobody was hurt. But it was a really windy night and the fire took the whole roof and probably most of the upper floor (library, science classrooms, and I don't know what else.) And, of course, the thousands of gallons of water they needed to put out the fire have flooded the school.
They're looking at options of what to do with the kids - probably send each grade to a different site. In the meantime, they have a one-week unscheduled 'vacation'.
