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.
