FARGO - School officials here are concerned about whether Hawthorne Elementary will be fixed after a car crashed into it on Wednesday night, Aug. 3.
Police were called to the school at 555 8th Ave. S. about 9:30 p.m., and weren't able to find the driver at the scene. Fargo Deputy Chief Joe Anderson said Thursday afternoon he wasn't sure what progress the investigating officer had made in locating the suspect.
The cost to repair the damage isn't known yet, Fargo Public Schools spokeswoman AnnMarie Campbell said Thursday. District officials are hoping to know what the price tag will be by Monday.
Campbell said in addition to the damage to the outside of the building, the school's music room was also damaged.
"Obviously with school coming up, it is a concern for us to get that all remedied," Campbell said.
School starts on Aug. 25, and staff return on Aug. 22.
