Monterey High School students can expect to smell tar for the first four months of school. Roofers will be replacing the roof in about two weeks. School officials say it could take a little over 100 days to complete the job.
You may remember Wheelock Elementary school was having their roof replaced at the end of school. A few students were sent home sick because of the strong odor. However, air purifiers were placed throughout the school to help keep the air clean. Monterey plans to do the same thing.
