SALEM, Mo. (AP) - Summer vacation will continue for a few extra days for students in a south-central Missouri school district.

Officials with the Salem School District said the first day of school was delayed from Wednesday until Monday because a $7 million renovation and construction project isn’t finished.

The district says on its webpage that the remaining work would be a liability issue if students returned before the work is done.

KYTV reports (https://bit.ly/182GQA0 ) Superintendent Steve Carvajal says the middle school and high school have new classrooms and restrooms, as well as renovated libraries, a computer lab and a new school cafeteria. The project also included a new floor, roof and heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.
