Roof blows off St. Anthony of Padua School in Lorain during superstorm Sandy

Classes canceled this week

LORAIN, Ohio - Workers began cleaning up at St. Anthony of Padua School in Lorain Wednesday after high winds blew portions of the roof off.

Extensive damage was done to the school when Sandy hit at about 8:30 p.m. Monday.

The Rev. Richard Hudak said volunteers helped move some equipment out of the building, but several computers were damaged. He said it could be a couple of months before all repairs can be made.

In the meantime, Hudak said he is working with the Lorain School Board for a plan to possibly transport students to St. Thomas the Apostle in Sheffield Lake. The school is currently empty and could be a temporary home for the Catholic school as early as Monday.

Hudak stressed that all plans right now are only tentative. Parents will be notified when a plan is in place.

Classes were canceled for students for the rest of the week.
