Last month’s flooding at Kingston Elementary School proved expensive for the school system.
Director of Schools Gary Aytes said the cost to redo damaged tiles is around $125,000.
The bulk of that amount – $100,000 – is being covered by insurance.
“The insurance company has said they will pay, so we collected $100,000 from insurance to redo the tile in two parts of the Kingston Elementary School,” he said.
The work has already started.
