Laurens Academy Resumes Classes

It was back to school today for students at Laurens Academy. Joani Stribling of the academy announced that the school would be safe for students to return on a normal schedule. Parents and students were asked to be aware that there is some exterior damage to the gymnasium building, as well as several downed trees around the campus. Laurens Academy is working with insurance and local contractors to make repairs and cleanup throughout the week. Stribling said that, at present, volunteers were not needed to help with cleanup. The school is waiting on the professional crews to complete their work. Once the professionals and their equipment have completed the heavy work, Laurens Academy advises they will send out a request for volunteers to assist them with the remaining work in returning the campus to normal.
