This morning we had a very large water leak in the junior high that sent 2-3 inches of water into the north hallway. In minutes we had administrators, teachers, custodians, and students rushing around with brooms, shop-vacs, and fans to get the water cleaned up. We are blessed to have students and staff so dedicated to helping each other, and taking care of our schools. #goblackbears
