BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
The Shelby County Board of Education says Oak Mountain High School was vandalized overnight.
Shelby County Schools Spokesperson Cindy Warner says a slippery/soapy substance was put on the school's hallway floors. Students are being temporarily housed in the commons area, performing arts center and cafeteria since the classrooms are not accessible.
Cleaning crews have been called to clean up the hallways. Classrooms are expected to be reopened soon.
Students who wish to leave are allowed to check out with parental permission. Around 11 a.m., there was a line of parents waiting to check out their kids that stretched outside the school building.
