LAWRENCEVILLE, Ill.—A portion of the roof of the new high school building in Lawrenceville collapsed this morning, spilling roofing material, snow and ice onto a hallway.

The new school.

The new school.

No students or faculty were injured in the collapse, which was attributed to the heavy weight of melting, then re-freezing, snow and ice on the metal roof of the brand new structure.

However, there were a lot of students reported griping, some of them because of the mess it made outside, and in at least one known case, inside, their lockers.

The building of the school was a point of contention between the school district and the citizens, many of whom claimed that the old high school was perfectly serviceable and the taxpayers didn’t need the additional tax burden imposed on them.

And it’s already had more problems than a brand new building SHOULD have: such as the sewage back-up we reported here last June, before the place was even in operation.

More as we get it…but it looks like Frank Ladner’s buddies involved in this venture might want to rethink their stances on the expenditures they’ve been putting forth for Lawrence, if this is what’s going to keep happening.

The old school

The old school. Still standing. No roof collapses, no sewage backup.
