GARDEN CITY, Ala. (AP) - Garden City schools officials are finding alternate locations to hold classes in after a group of engineers condemned a school building.

The Cullman Times reported Thursday (https://bit.ly/1olPCAb ) the nearly 100-year-old main building at Garden City School was declared a life threatening area because of sinking and crumbling foundation. Classes may be held in some of the school’s additional buildings when school begins in less than a week.

The school’s principal Susan Melton spoke to parents during a meeting at a local church and said she couldn’t make any promises about what could happen to the building, but ensured that student safety is a top priority.

Cullman County Schools Superintendent Craig Ross says officials will fully diagnose the building’s problems and the process could take up to six or eight weeks.
