School Goes On Despite Roof Damage At Ravenwood HS

Posted: Updated:

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – The overnight storms damaged the roof and flooded parts of a school in Williamson County overnight, but school has gone as scheduled.

Classes were being held in the gymnasium and other parts of the building at Ravenwood High School in Brentwood.

The roof was seriously damaged, and classrooms on the second floor flooded. There was also standing water in other parts of the school.

Principal Pam Vaden said she learned of the issue around 6:30 a.m. when a teacher called her after coming into work early. Maintenance workers from across the county were called in to help clean up the water damage.

Vaden said teachers were ready in case something like this happened, as they practice every Monday. The principal wanted to assure parents

"I see teaching going on in the gym. We have at least six or eight teachers in the gym that would have been in their classrooms here," Vaden said. "They're holding up white boards with chemistry equations and they're just going on as usual."

It's unclear how long it will take to repair the damage. Most of the water damage will be cleaned up by Wednesday afternoon, but some of the more severe damage could take some time.

Classes will continue to meet in extra spaces until clean up is finished.
