This…unfortunately, is a normal occurrence at @SkylineHS when we see heavy rains in a short period of time. Drainage issues that have persisted since the building was originally built. Our great @GraniteFixIt Maintenance crew has it all cleaned up! pic.twitter.com/ycbr9hUJfI

The school principal said leaks and flooding are a “regular occurrence” because of the school’s aging and leaking roof. The auditorium area also flooded, canceling play practice and other activities for the day. Other activities and extracurriculars were able to resume.
“We reject any inconvenience and anticipate that theses issues will be resolved in time for the start of school tomorrow,” continues the Granite School District statement.
