SOUTH OTSELIC – After plans to create a combined K-12 campus were voted down in November, the Otselic Valley School District is looking at other options to address repairs needed at the South Otselic High School and the Georgetown Elementary School.
District resident Laura Porter asked the board what was being done about the plans to renovate the school buildings, mentioning that a piece of the ceiling in the elementary school had fallen in last week. “This needs immediate attention. It causes a safety issue and we need to do something about this,” Porter said.
School officials confirmed Porter’s statement, explaining that the issue with the ceiling had been addressed, and may have occurred whether or not the renovation project were taking place. Board member Terri Hammond blamed a leaking vent, and School Business Manager George Lott said the damage was primarily cosmetic.
