VILLAGE OF CLEVELAND, WI (WTAQ) - A school official says it will take about two weeks to rebuild a pair of classrooms that were damaged in a weekend storm in Manitowoc County.

In the meantime, pre-kindergarten and Montessori students have been moved to the gym of the Cleveland Elementary School -- which continues to operate while repairs are made.

A temporary roof was installed on Sunday, a day after straight line winds blew off part of the old roof, and heavy rains waterlogged the two classrooms.

Staff members were sent Monday to remove supplies, shelves, and tiles that were damaged.  

District superintendent Joe Sheehan said if crews had not spent Sunday vacuuming, he's not sure how far the water would have spread.
