Storm Damage Update

USD 232 began receiving notifications shortly after 6:00 a.m. Monday, May 20, of storm-related damage sustained overnight to structures and fencing within the Mill Valley High School outdoor athletics complex.

While crews were conducting an initial assessment of that damage, staff inside the school reported a strong odor of natural gas. Crews immediately shut off the gas supply following district safety procedures.

At this point, USD 232 decided to cancel classes for Mill Valley High School out of an abundance of caution.  Upon further inspection, crews identified a gas line on the school roof that was compromised by high winds. The gas line had been connected to an HVAC unit, which is now isolated with repairs underway.

Most of the storm damage is contained to structures and fencing within the school’s outdoor athletics area. Cleanup of debris will commence as soon as possible and will take time. For planning purposes, there will be no access to MVHS athletic fields and tennis courts until further notice. 

After a full inspection, Mill Valley High School is safe for staff and students to resume classes on Tuesday, May 21.

The only other report of storm-related damage is at Clear Creek Elementary School. The high winds damaged shingles on the roof.

We are grateful that the damage was primarily contained to the Mill Valley athletics area. Thank you for your continued support of USD 232.
