Melting snow on the Park Elementary School roof caused minor damage yesterday when water leaked through and caused some ceiling tiles to collapse, said Principal Diane L. Lenzi.
The snow, left from the Saturday night storm, soaked the lobby ceiling tiles, which fell about 7:30 a.m.
Staff members used garbage cans to catch the water, and mopped puddles. By 8:20 a.m., everything was clean, Mrs. Lenzi said.
The roof, which has caused problems before, is expected to require only minor repairs to keep it intact until the students and staff can move into the new Park Elementary School next year, she said.
Classes at the Brooklyn Park school started on time at 9 a.m.
