New photos posted by the publicity director for the Louisa County public school system show cracks in concrete block walls (as well as lots of stuff strewn about). But do the images really depict a school that must remain out of service for the entire academic year?
Hard to say, as County officials indicate that insurance adjusters and engineers have yet to determine a final prognosis. As the fate of the two schools most heavily damaged, the high school and Thomas Jefferson Elementary, hangs in limbo, officials have released a damage tally for the public school structures: $63.8 million.
As previously reported, the school division forbade a multi-institutional engineering team from entering its buildings, a free service that might have shed an academic light on the nature and extent of the damage.
