Students’ Return to Damaged Standing Rock School Delayed
CANNON BALL, N.D. (AP) — Students at an elementary school on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation that was damaged by a grass fire will have to wait a little longer to return to their regular classrooms.
The 120 students have been attending classes in Solen since the Oct. 11 blaze that melted playground equipment and filled the Cannon Ball school with smoke and soot.
They were to return to Cannon Ball on Wednesday, but school administrator Justin Fryer tells KXMB-TV that cleanup isn't done.
Fryer says officials will inspect the building Friday with hopes of moving students back in on Monday.
