Clawson Schools Buildings Damaged by FloodJudy_Palmer30years

(Clawson Public Schools Press Release, Aug. 22, 2014)

The Clawson School District has insurance that will cover most of the damage which occurred in the August 11, 2014 flood. According to Superintendent Monique Beels, “We are working closely with our insurance company to assess the damage and replace classroom and office furnishings as quickly as possible.”

“Opening Baker Child Care is our top priority. We sincerely apologize for the hardship this has caused our families. I want to commend our staff – teachers, custodians, administrators, office staff – everyone has pulled together to help each other and ensure that we will be ready for the opening of school Tuesday, 934_8600_Gen-Online_BannersSeptember 2.”

A professional restoration company has been working around the clock extracting water, surveying the sidebar01reader_supportdamage, sanitizing, installing fans and dehumidifiers to dry out the building.
All classroom carpeting has been removed. We will be replacing all the classroom tile and carpeting beginning this weekend and are currently itemizing damaged furniture so that replacements can be ordered. Remaining furnishings are being sanitized.

We expect all of our schools will be ready for Opening Day Tuesday, September 2. We are hoping to have our Child Care Center open next week.
