SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Springfield's Chestnut Accelerated Middle School will get some help from the state to repair its roof that was damaged in a hail storm.
The hail fell on the Chestnut Middle School in Springfield and initially no damage was found, but when heavy rain fell, the roof leaked from very small holes from the hail, causing water damage in the school.
The school will now be part of the Massachusetts School Building Authority's Accelerated Repair Program.
The program provides funding to schools to make energy efficient repairs.
