No School Friday For Lincoln High School Students After Ceiling Collapses In Classroom

Local News

Students who just started classes at Lincoln High School this week will be missing another day of school because of a collapsed ceiling in one of the classrooms.

The ceiling in the third-floor classroom collapsed on Wednesday, canceling classes for students on Thursday, and now Friday.

No one was in the classroom when it happened, so no one was hurt. 

“Kind of worried, like I don’t want it to happen again, but just like that one chance it might, that’s just weird,” Lincoln High School student Makala Mott said. 

Manitowoc Public School District superintendent Mark Holzman described the collapse as a domino effect, with one ceiling tile falling and causing the others to fall after it. 

He said the last time major renovations were done on the school, which included work on the ceiling, was back in 1999. 

The cause for the collapse is still unknown. Inspectors are checking the integrity of the building and figuring out whether this was a weak spot, or if the rest of the ceiling is at-risk of breaking down.
