BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The overnight storms that left three people dead in Bossier and Caddo parishes also did significant damage to a local school.

According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, the roof on the north side of Benton Middle School has major damage, and as a result, water damage from the sprinkler system has flooded many rooms.

Officials with the Bossier Parish School District said they’ll make a decision on Sunday if they’ll have school on Monday.

Crews were on site Saturday working to repair the damage at the school.

Louisiana Congressman Mike Johnson also posted pictures of the damage from inside Benton Middle School.
