SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) -- Students are back in class at a Summersville school where the roof partially collapsed under the weight of heavy snow.

Nicholas County assistant schools superintendent Damon Hanshaw tells WCHS-TV (http://bit.ly/RFAo8m ) that crews stabilized Summersville Elementary School on Monday and Tuesday. Students returned to classes Wednesday.

Hanshaw says repairs won't be fully completed until December.

The 50-year-old school has about 350 students. It was among several structures in Nicholas County damaged by heavy snow last week.
