High school roof repairs temporarily halted due to strong odor

Estacada School District Superintendent Marla Stephenson has decided to temporarily halt roof repairs at Estacada High School due to a complaint of a strong smell of roofing tar.

Roughly a third of the high school’s roof is undergoing restoration and repairs in an effort to repair major leaks before the rains come, Stephenson said.

But after a parent complained about the smell, Stephenson said she decided to halt the work for the remainder of the school week.

The repairs will resume over the weekend.

As the work continues into the next school week, Stephenson said that some classes in the restoration area will be moved to empty classrooms in the Junior High and River Mill Elementary School building for an estimated 7-10 days.
