Beloit elementary school closed after gym wall cracks

BELOIT, WI (WTAQ) - An elementary school in Beloit is closed Wednesday, after a gymnasium wall started to crack during a construction project.

Robinson Elementary School was evacuated just before 3 p.m. Tuesday. There were no gym classes taking place at the time, and nobody was hurt.

Officials said crews were digging to place footings for a new addition when the foundation started collapsing under the gym – and it caused the gym’s north wall to crack.

As it turned out, the 400 kindergarten through 3rd grade students were released at their normal times.

They’re off Wednesday, while crews support the school’s foundation with back-fill and heavy timber.

The cracks will be repaired, and structural engineers will then inspect the school building.
