Thankfulness replaces water in Community Christian School

Repairs from burst pipe delays start of school year to Aug. 22

Special to the Index

Community Christian School was literally overflowing the morning of July 11th when it was discovered that a pipe in the pre-kindergarten classroom had burst sometime after everyone left the previous day.

There was more than an inch of water flowing from the classroom into both hallways. Administrator Doug Jefferson soon discovered that the water had overflowed into the elementary rest rooms, another classroom, the storage area, and a small portion of the library.

“We thank God that the flooding was discovered before any books were damaged,” Mr. Jefferson told the teachers as word was sent out that manpower was needed to help empty the rooms so that repairs could began once the insurance adjuster had finished his report.

In true CCS fashion teachers, parents and even students worked to clear the rooms of water logged bookshelves, soaked supplies and soggy books so that demolition and construction could begin as soon as possible.

Jefferson said he and the board of directors opted to change the first day of school to Aug. 22nd to allow the faculty and staff extra time to put the rooms back together once construction was finished.

“All construction will be finished before school starts next Wednesday” Jefferson said. “The rooms and hallways that were affected by the flood have been completely redone with new carpet, walls, paint and, for the Pre-K room, new furniture.”

Construction is being completed by local contractor Mike Tincher and his crew at Tincher’s Custom Homes and Remodeling.

Over a month later and Community Christian School is still overflowing – just not with water. They are overflowing with thankfulness and are eager to get the 2012-13 school year under way.
