VERONA, WI (WTAQ) - A school in Verona that was heavily damaged in a June 17th tornado will be fixed next Monday, and it will be ready for the start of fall classes on September 2nd.
According to the district's Web site, Country View Elementary in Verona is still getting its new roof installed -- along with flooring and a school playground. Furniture also needs to be moved back into the classrooms.
The wreckage from the tornado covered about 17,000 square feet of school facilities.
At last word, the damage estimate was $3 to $4 million -- and insurance was supposed to cover most of it.
The final repair cost will be known in a couple months, when construction invoices are set and paid off.
