The sun was shining as buses pulled in to Penn Yan Academy Monday morning but those buses had to be re-routed around one campus road washed out by the storms. The road is still littered with tree debris and parts of it eroded by the creek that runs underneath.
Penn Yan Central School District Superintendent David Hamilton said, “We think the bridge is structurally sound but it will be quite some time before the deck is fixed.”
Hamilton held an assembly this morning to assure students they would be able to make up AP exams cancelled last week and sporting events critical to sectional playoffs. "It's recovery week and I think it's going to take a process of many weeks to get things taken care of."
But the more serious issue, hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage left by the floods. The parking area near Jacobs Creek is covered in mud and houses on Champlin Street have been declared uninhabitable.
