On Monday, the Indiana School Board’s Buildings, Grounds and Transportation Committee got an update from officials on the damage from Friday’s fire at Eisenhower elementary school.
Superintendent Michael Vuckovich last night showed some of the pictures he took as he walked through the school. Along with the damage to the two modular classrooms, the main building took on smoke and water damage. Vuckovich described how the main building looked with all the visible damage.
The cause of the fire remains unknown at this time, but investigations are continuing not only with police, but with Fire and Water Restoration out of Pittsburgh. The investigations are still in their early phases.
Eisenhower students will go into their second day of asynchronous learning Tuesday, and students will go back before teachers on Wednesday, with 4th graders going to Horace Mann and 5th graders going to the junior high school. It was also announced that IUP had offered the district some of their classrooms to use if they needed them. More information on the temporary arrangement, including bus information and pick-up/drop off details will be released tomorrow.
