The roof is falling!

The roof of Greenbrier has been undergoing a lot of construction during the recent weeks. It has been discovered that all of the noise is actually occurring because the roof was suffering from water damage. The refurbishment has been heard in all of the hallways, but is most noticeable in the Literature Hall.

For some students, the roof work is just a mild nuisance , but for others, it has actually become a disturbance. Sophomore Kaylah White complained, “It is loud and distracting. Also, it causes teachers to get cranky.” It affects everyone because the students have a harder time learning and the teachers have a harder time captivating their attention.

The construction noise varies depending on what areas are being worked on. Students are disturbed most by the atmosphere of loud noises and various noises made by maintenance vans and other machinery.  The occasional sound of heavy items being dropped onto the roof sometimes shake the ceiling and create the sensation that a large stomping giant may fall through the tiles at any moment. Freshman K.B. Sandhu says the most noise can be heard by “Mrs.Dorn’s class at the end of the Literature hall.”

For now, it appears the trucks that are working on the roof have slowed down just a bit, but don’t be surprised to see and hear a lot more construction throughout this school year at Greenbrier.
