The rainy weather Thursday caused a number of problems at schools around southern Nevada.
Sand bags had to be put up around a few storage areas at Las Vegas High School. Desert Rose High School cancelled classes and at Rex Bell Elementary a leaky roof caused problems.
According to Assistant Principal Christina Miani, the ceiling of the front office was coming apart because of the rain water leaking through. Students had to walk through an inch or more of water in the hallways.
She says the roof is an example of why many older schools in southern Nevada need to be replaced.
"I think this is the reason why we need new school facilities here at Rex Bell Elementary School because we want the best for our students, all of our students. We need to be top notch so we can continue being a four star striving to be a five-star elementary school," Miani said.
