Police Say Someone Damaged 2 Classrooms, Making Them 'Unusable' For FridayBy WCCO-TV Staff

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Officials with Minneapolis Public Schools say the Sheridan School is closed Friday after a break-in incident overnight.

The break-in affected several classrooms at the arts and Spanish dual immersion school. Staff made the discovery early Friday morning.

An official with the school district says, according to police, someone entered the building illegally early Friday morning and caused enough damage in two classrooms to make them “unusable” Friday. While the majority of the building is fine, classes were cancelled because the police were still investigating.

Staff and students will not be required to participate in formal online learning, but students are “encouraged to read a book, care for another and be back to school on Monday,” the official said.

The school is located on the 1200 block of University Avenue.
