This should serve as a reminder to make sure your solar array is mounted properly, and with the appropriate foundation underneath.

Yeah, really. Look how long (or should I say short) those bolts are in the last pic... what a waste of money for them to build what looks like a nice array and then not have it secured properly. What's that they used to say? Penny wise and pound foolish. Shame really..

According to the news article, there were several of these arrays, all similarly mounted, on the grounds of the school. The contractor is going to have to answer some serious questions, soon, I predict.

No doubt, especially at an elementary school. I am pretty certain they have all the other arrays blocked off so no one can go near them, by now.
