A McDowell County school is shut down after a section of the parking area slid into the nearby Tug River.
Spencer says a 100-foot by 40-foot section of the parking area slid into the river early Saturday morning. The McDowell County school board determined that the school is unsafe.
Classes have been canceled for the week.
About 350 students attend the school. They are expected to resume classes next week at other facilities.
