GRAYSLAKE, Ill. (AP) - A Chicago-area high school has started its school year on time less than two weeks after it was damaged by an EF-1 tornado.

The (Waukegan) News-Sun (https://trib.in/1HXBQbw ) reports Grayslake Central High School welcomed back students Aug. 13. During a storm Aug. 2, portions of the Lake County school’s roof were tossed across the street, and the building also sustained other damage.

Contractors worked nearly around the clock to fix the roof. School district superintendent Catherine Finger says the only damage that remained when school started were broken windows that were boarded up. They were scheduled to be replaced this week.

Finger said Wednesday that the damage is estimated to cost roughly $350,000.
