Water leak damages main office at Mohr Elementary

School library will serve as temporary office space

A water leak discovered Sunday at Mohr Elementary School will keep the main office closed until well after the start of the school year Aug. 25.

"It was in the teachers' workroom area, and it appears to have spread to the main office area," said school district spokeswoman Myla Grasso.

Grasso reported the leak was from a supply line and that other rooms were damaged by the water as well.

She said the library, adjacent to the main office, will be used as temporary office space for newly appointed principal Ben Fobert and his staff.

It's estimated that the damage will take two months to clean up, but Grasso said there should be little out-of-pocket cost for the school district.

"It will be an insurance claim," she said.

Grasso said it was unlikely it would have been caught earlier, even if staff hours at the school had not been reduced.

The Mohr staff has done a great job of making a quick change and making the library our main office. As new principal at Mohr, I am so pleased with the way that the district has responded to this issue. We are working to make sure that Mohr will have a smooth opening! Thanks to Janet and Karen in the main office, and to our custodians Joe and Francisco for being so flexible.

Mohr is a very lucky school to have Mr. Fobert as the new principal. He will work through this mess with a positive attitude and see that the situation is remedied quickly and professionally. Mr. Fobert is amazing! Mohr...you guys scored!!! (Amador is sorry to see him go! )
