ACGC board approves roof repair for Cosmos school dubbed 'South Beach' due to its leaks


COSMOS -- There were so many leaks in the roof at the elementary school in Cosmos early this spring that buckets catching rainwater in the hallway had a sign by them that said, "South Beach."

This week the Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City School Board got a first-hand look at the top-side of the leaky roof.

Tom Fordyce, the building and grounds manager, explained how rain was leaking in through the bubble-type sun roofs that dot the top of one section of the building.
