(KTVI) – Some elementary students in the Parkway school district are back in class on Monday at a new school. Eighty-eight fifth graders at Shenandoah Valley Elementary have been relocated to nearby Highcroft Ridge School.
A pipe burst at their school last week, flooding parts of the building. Highcroft students are ready to welcome their temporary visitors. Teachers moved around furniture and set up four classrooms.
Shenandoah Valley teacher Susan Vent said she expects a smooth transition.
“You know kids are amazing. They adjust extremely well so I am confident they will make the transition very smoothly,” Vent said. “I think many of them are viewing it as a fun adventure.”
District officials hope to have the kids back in their regular classrooms in a few weeks.
