MOSCOW, ID - The Moscow School District is busy cleaning up flood damage at Moscow High School so students can start class as scheduled on January seventh.

Superintendent Greg Bailey said a maintenance worker discovered that a pipe burst last Thursday and flooded the first floor of the school. Now crews are busy replacing floor tiles in multiple rooms, spraying anti-fungal treatment, and making any other necessary repairs.

"It could have been a lot worse," said Bailey. "It could have gone down into our basement section, or our two annexes. But, luckily the water did go out the doors by that time."

Bailey said the district doesn't have a monetary value for the damage yet, but he believes insurance will cover the cost. Bailey said the floors saw most of the damage, and personal property, paperwork, computers and instruments weren't affected.

Moscow High students may or may not be happy to hear this, but school will likely start on the seventh as originally scheduled.
