Collapsed roof at Middle and High School getting evaluated

The district is currently assessing the situation after the roof collapsed at Lee Middle and High School overnight June 6. No one was injured

Engineers and architects are assessing the situation after a portion of the roof collapsed at Lee Middle and High School on June 6.

No one was injured during the overnight collapse at the school, 1335 Lee St. SW, Wyoming. The roof collapsed over second-floor classrooms on the west side of the building.

After a review of the building, there are no areas of immediate concern for structural failure, but the district is taking steps to do a complete and thorough inspection, according to a press release.

An inspector from the City of Wyoming approved use of the building not impacted by the roof collapse, according to the release.

“We hope to have more information in the coming days and we will share out when we can,” said Kevin Polston, Godfrey-Lee superintendent. “We are thankful for the quick work of our contractors to secure the building and work quickly to complete an assessment of the entire building.”
