Tornado Update
Posted on 09/01/2020
An update from District Superintendent, G. Michael Apostol:

As you all know, the Hoosic Valley Community was hit by a tornado on Saturday August 29th . Unfortunately, the High School, Elementary School, the District office and the bus garage and surrounding grounds were hit. The good side (if you will) is that the damage was not as bad as it could have been. A lot of little things happened to our buildings and grounds. Parts of the High School and Elementary roofs were damaged, a window was shattered, a couple of roof vents were blown off, some of the athletic equipment was blown around and power poles were knocked down.

National Grid was here on Sunday and Monday to restore power. On Monday, our architect, CSArch was here to make sure that our buildings were stable (they are). Professional Fire Restoration was here to clean up any rooms that may have had water leaking into them. NYSIR (our insurance company) was here to assess our damage so that we can put a claim in. Quality Glass will be fixing any glass issues that we may have. We have contacted Salvadore Tree Services to clean up any downed trees or limbs. Titan Roofing is on the scene to repair any damage to our roofs. All of this will be covered by out insurance carrier.

None of the damage should prevent us from opening school as scheduled. As you can image, this puts added pressure on our cleaning staff to get the buildings and grounds ready for our opening. Matt Waryas and his crew are up to the task and are working hard to get us ready.

This is just another barrier to us to open school in September. With your everlasting support we will get through this as we always do. We are Hoosic Valley Strong. I will keep you updated on the progress of our repairs and as always you may call or write me with any questions or concerns.
