TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Cleanup and repair continues are at a furious pace at Joyner Elementary School in Tupelo.

Eight classrooms sustained water and other damage.

The hole in the school's roof is being repaired.

Officials say extensive repairs are needed in the classrooms located in the kindergarten wing.

Tupelo Public School District spokesperson Kay Bishop says one third of the classrooms were damaged at the school.

Century Construction President Colin Maloney says more than one hundred construction workers are on site to get the school ready for Monday classes.

In all, the company is working multiple projects throughout the city.

"We have worked several storm-related projects. This is the biggest one close to home," said Maloney.

Repairs to the damaged wing will likely be finished in the summer.
