NAPA (KRON) — Students won’t have to go to school on Tuesday while officials with the Napa Valley Unified School District continue to assess possible damage to campuses from the South Napa earthquake.
Superintendent Patrick Sweeney says structural engineers have examined twenty of the thirty campuses that are part of the Napa Valley Unified district and found all of those buildings are structurally sound.
Inspections of the remaining ten campuses will be complete by noon on Tuesday. Officials say they will announce at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday if classes will be in session on Wednesday.
Sweeney says while the buildings are safe, there are broken windows at school schools and busted light fixtures. Bookcases and computers are strewn across the floor.
The Boys and Girls Clubs and Napa Parks and Recreation are offering supervised activities for kids whose parents can’t arrange child care while the schools are closed, Sweeney says.
