Students and staff of the Atlantic Middle School will be “Unable to occupy [the building] for the foreseeable future,” according to Atlantic School District Superintendent Steve Barber, while mitigation strategies related to a fire that occurred Tuesday, are under way. That was the consensus among mitigation inspectors following a fire that caused an estimated $875,000 damage to the roof that was under repair, and water damage to a good portion of the building. The price mentioned was the bid for Phase I mitigation from FirstOnSite Property Restoration, which the School Board approved during the emergency session. Phase I includes the removal of the water and deodorization of the structure. The District’s deductible is $5,000. The School Board held an Emergency Meeting 8-p.m. Wednesday, to act on bids for the mitigation of fire-related damages.
