“We don’t want to expose any of our staff or our students to any kind of unsafe areas to walk or anything like that,” said Dr. John Pallone, the superintendent of the New Kensington-Arnold School District. “It’s just a mere cautionary measure.”

The 30-year-old roof now needs to be replaced, but it will cost the district more than half a million dollars.
