Heavy snow has put many school roofs at risk of collapse

From The Boston Globe: Massachusetts officials say schools damaged by heavy snow can apply for emergency assistance, while urging towns to make sure older schools are prepared for severe weather. Blanketed by the snow of several snowstorms, the roof of an elementary school in Georgetown partially gave way last week, closing the building for several days. A number of other school systems have reported snow damage this month or canceled classes to clear roofs threatened by huge piles of snow and ice.
