HUMBOLDT Two months ago, USD 258 applied for a grant, which, if successful, would deliver to the Humboldt school district a much-needed FEMA storm shelter.
On Monday, Superintendent of Schools Kay Lewis was able to let the board of education know: the grant was approved.
The above-ground shelter, which will be erected on the west side of Humboldt Elementary School, will hold up to 450 people and will contain two classrooms plus an additional area for neighboring residents who lack shelter of their own.
