of Donations for Planada Elementary After Flooding
There’s a silver lining to the clouds of adversity
that have hovered over Planada Elementary School for
more than three weeks.
Damage from the March 23 storm that severely damaged
the wing housing four fifth-grade classrooms and the
library ultimately may range between $500,000 and
$750,000 when all repair costs are calculated.
How these costs will be recouped still must be determined.
When doors to the classrooms and library were opened
early that stormy day, five to seven inches of water
rushed out. That was the result of stormwater flowing
over the banks of Miles Creek, about a mile from the
school, and into places it shouldn’t have gone.

side despite many challenges in trying to make things
