This is what the Rockdale Junior-High Commons area looked like at one point during the just-completed holidays, after a water leak flooded more than half the building. Water was reported six to eight inches deep in the sunken commons with chair legs showing the depth of the flooding. However, the sunken commons kept water out of the gym and off the gym floor, heading off potentially even more expensive repairs. The building was fully restored in time for classes to begin on Monday. See story photos, page 1A.
