After the Storm, a Trustee assessment was made & decision made to remove all water damaged carpet to curtail further damage from mold/mildew. Furniture moved from class rooms w/ carpet to hallways w/ no carpet.
This effort was discussed with our Insurance Agent & Policy Holder.
We were advised that we could not begin making repairs until the Adjuster has approved needed repairs.
