WARREN — While severe rain damaged basements and frustrated residents Aug. 11, the Center Line Public Schools Early Childhood Center on Cunningham Street also fell victim to the flooding.
There was extensive damage to the building, which has remained closed since the area’s historic rainfall. Companies have been working to repair what was damaged, and school officials remain confident the ECC will be open on time for the first day of school Sept. 2.
In the wake of the disaster, school officials have set up one room inside the ECC in which parents can register their children for programs. Those who come to the school for registration are asked to enter through door No. 6.
CLPS Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Lisa Oleski said there also was “light flooding” at all the other buildings in the district. There also was “one area of significant flooding” at Center Line High School.
A Macomb County Flood Assistance folder was added to the district’s website at www.clps.org at the bottom of the home page with information for anyone in need of assistance in the aftermath. There also is a Macomb County health advisory on precautions to follow after the flooding.
