The school board has decided to tear down the middle school building that was heavily damaged by a tornado that tore through Pilger on June 16.

The Wisner-Pilger board voted Monday night to buy three portable classrooms for the students and staff. The portables will be erected near the elementary school in Wisner, which is 12 miles east of Pilger. Classes are scheduled to begin on Aug. 14.

The storm killed a 5-year-old girl in Pilger and a 74-year-old motorist a few miles east of town. More than half of the town of 350 was heavily damaged or destroyed.
