Fargo school repaired in time for classesSpring flood damage at Fargo's Oak Grove Lutheran School has been repaired in time for the start of fall classes.
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Spring flood damage at Fargo's Oak Grove Lutheran School has been repaired in time for the start of fall classes.
A breach in a Red River dike flooded two buildings at the school's riverside campus in March, forcing many students to spend the last seven weeks of the spring semester at the school's south campus.
Student Body President Peter Frei says it's ``cool' to be back on the main campus this fall.
Custodians and other staff worked without a day off this month. More than 100 volunteers moved in desks and textbooks to the repaired halls.
Flood damage was estimated at $2 million. The school last week submitted a $1.75 million application to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Officials say they hope insurance will cover at least some of the rest.
