Leaders at the Estacada School District estimate that repairs to the roof of Clackamas River Elementary School will be completed sometime this week.
The work, which began on Monday, June 19, included the repair of several raised sections of the roof that were leaking.
Jason Simpson, communications coordinator for the Estacada School District, noted that there had been no structural damage to the 2001 building, but district leaders wanted to repair the sections that were leaking before such issues occurred.
Simpson added that because the work involved the raised sections of the roof, the project also created an opportunity to examine the area under-
neath the raised area and see what sort of preventative maintenance might need to be done.
The Estacada School Board approved up to $92,000 to be spent on the roof repair. The money came from the school district's Capital Projects fund, which is used for im-provements to district buildings.
Ryan Carpenter, superintendent of the Estacada School District, noted that the project correlates with the district's focus on student learning and achievement, since it improves a learning environment.
"By giving our students access to clean, safe and leakfree classrooms, we can focus on our goal and be good stewards of our properties in the community," Carpenter said.
