Officials say an elementary school in Milltown that was vandalized last week will be able to open on time, thanks to the work of dozens of volunteers.

Heritage Elementary School Principal Linda Ennis reached out to parents, asking them to help school board members, teachers and staff clean up the school. She says about 75 people turned out Wednesday, and their work made a dramatic difference.

Red Clay Schools Superintendent Merv Daughterty says the school will open Aug. 31 as scheduled.

The vandals caused $100,000 in damage to a new computer lab, smashed windows and damaged floors. State police say they have several leads but haven't made any arrests.

Anyone who may have information pertaining to this case is asked to call 302-834-2630 ext. 211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
