Record heat, record snow, and storm damage were all topics the Rapid City Superintendent addressed on Monday morning.
Rapid City Area School sSuperintendent Dr. Tim Mitchell says, while Rapid City schools didn't have serious damage like Sturgis Middle School, there were still leaks and flooding at some of the schools. Downed trees and branches had to be cleared from some of the buildings.
Dr. Mitchell also said schools like Central and Stevens are still dealing with damage from a July hailstorm.
"The biggest thing that we can't get over is we have summer hail damaged roofs. With that kind of snow and the moisture we have had, we've accepted bids for contractors but we can't get them on the roofs," said Dr. Mitchell.
