A child playing on the Harbor View Elementary School campus over spring break climbed on the roof of the school at 900 Goldenrod Ave. and broke through a skylight, the principal told students at a Flag Deck ceremony today.
Principal Charlene Metoyer told students the story and reminded them never to climb on the school roof. She also told them not to skateboard on campus, although she did not know if the injured child was skateboarding on the roof when the accident occurred.
The child, who was not identified, required 13 stitches on his leg when he stepped on a skylight near the cafeteria and fell partway through.
“Kids are not supposed to be on the roof,” Metoyer told the students.
