With Rudd residents still cleaning up and waiting for all power and water to be restored following Wednesday night’s tornado, the Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock School District will cancel classes for a second day in a row.
Superintendent Todd Liechty says there will be no school Friday, but the school building in Rockford will again be available for those needing to access shower facilities. In addition, Liechty says they also have a supply of water, snacks, mittens, gloves and other essentials residents can stop by and pick up. Liechty says the school will re-open to the public at 10 a.m. Friday.
With classes cancelled yesterday, the Rockford school building opened from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for showers and the district also offered free breakfast and lunch to the public.
In a Facebook post this morning, the school district says they, “will be shuttling people up to Rudd this morning when officials begin letting people into Rudd at 9:00am. People are planning on being here at the high school at 8:30am. We feel that it is best to shuttle people to Rudd so there isn’t so many vehicles driving around the town. Please make sure you dress warm, the weather is supposed to be cold today. Please be safe and thank you for your generosity.”
