Strong Weekend Winds Don't Delay New Pasco Elementary Construction

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA. - Strong weekend winds did a lot of damage to Pasco's new elementary school. However, school district officials say the damage to the building that's still under construction isn't as bad as it looks.

Before the gusts of wind hit on Saturday, the construction crew was working at a steady pace. Fowler Construction, the team behind the new facility, says they were ahead of schedule

"We believe in what we've been told. That time will be recovered due to the fact that we were ahead of schedule, we had very good weather to work," said Pasco School District's Assistant Superintendent John Morgan.

The crews were back out Monday to work and they say they can work around the damage and stay on track.

The Pasco School District says they plan to be at the school next fall with doors open for grade school kids.
