Critical infrastructure failures at East Oktibbeha County High School in Crawford have forced students to endure emergency conditions, particularly throughout an often bitterly cold winter.

Most recently, a late February storm severely damaged a portion of the school’s roof above the cafeteria, causing water to pour into the cafeteria and kitchen floors, according to Oktibbeha County School District Conservator Margie Pulley.
