ALBANY, GA (WALB) - School was back in session today at Head Start in Albany, but teachers say only a few students showed up.

School officials with Head Start in Albany told more than 100 students not to come to school Monday when they discovered parts of the school had flooded.

Teachers say only 40 students showed up Tuesday.

School officials say they think the roof, which is under construction, may have blown back in the storm causing water to leak in.

Tuesday crews worked on cleaning up the mess and builders worked on finishing up on the new roof.

Parents say its a good thing school officials told them not to come to school for safety reasons.

"Trying to get my kids into school but we have a little situation here that is not expect, like I say the mother nature, you cant do really nothing," said Carlos Guzman

Head start school officials say the roof should be finished sometime tomorrow.
