The school is expected to be shut down for at least 3 weeks. Clean up crews are working throughout the building. School leaders decided today to keep grades K though 8 in town for the time being, going to school at local churches.

The high school will be bussed to Wyndmere. The school superintendent says teachers were relieved to hear some answers today.

"And once they kind of know where they're going and how we're handling it and they get right into it and the anxiety kind of goes away."

Students will start their new school schedule on Wednesday.
