Classes to resume at Manitowoc high school
MANITOWOC, Wis. (WLUK) -- Students will be back in class Monday after the ceiling collapsed last week at Lincoln High School.
Superintendent Mark Holzman said the following message was sent to parents Sunday:
All students will enter the building through the JFK Fieldhouse where we will welcome them with an all school assembly beginning at 8:20 AM. We are excited to have our students back at Lincoln
12 classrooms on the third floor will need additional supports before students and staff can return to them. The remaining classrooms on the third floor and the rest of the building have been deemed to be structurally sound.
We would like to thank families for their patience and understanding. Safety and well-being of students and staff is our number one priority. Go Ships.
The drop ceiling was installed in the classroom in 1999. The classroom is in the original part of the building, which was built in 1923.
No one was hurt or in the classroom at the time of the collapse.
