Tyler Carl, of South China, an employee of G&E Roofing, pushes snow from the roof of Jordan Acres Elementary School in Brunswick on Friday morning. A portion of the main support beam over a classroom at the school buckled on Thursday night due to the weight of snow and ice. No one was hurt and interior damage was minimal, but school was closed that day as a precaution. A team of local engineers assessed the building over the weekend and determined that the building was safe for normal operations, and temporary supports were put in place. Several support beams will be reinforced with steel during April vacation.
