After a weekend storm, school officials are looking forward to putting on a new roof at McLean County High School.
They'll spend part of their holidays going over blueprints to get the job done.
Normally you should hear basketballs dribbling and the occasional blow of a whistle, but that has been replaced by dryers as crews clean up the damage and officials work to determine the price tag associated with it.
Crews are working to salvage what they can.
"Currently, we are waiting for an insurance adjustor to come and survey the damage. We have an architect here on site today who is looking at the structural integrity of the building. Ultimately there will be a determination made to if student's can return to school safely," said Tres Settle, the Superintendent of McLean County Schools.
School officials have decided their holiday tournament will be held at Apollo High School. After that, McLean County will use their middle school and elementary schools to host basketball games for the high school teams.
"Considering students are out of the building there couldn't have been a better time for this to have happened," Settle said.
Officials did say the current basketball floor was about eight years old and cost around $100,000.
