Back in School After the Flood

Back in School After the Flood

Posted: Updated:

For the first time in three years, the school year is beginning in a permanent building for students at Longfellow Elementary in Minot.

The school was destroyed by flood waters in 2011 and today's opening marks the start of a new era at the school.

Jim Olson was there as the first students started filtering in for the new year.

Principal Tracey Lawson is understandably excited to see students in the halls at Longfellow again. So are the staff members.

And how about the kids?

Awesome indeed. The new Longfellow incorporates much of the old space - remodeled of course - with brand new areas. And for the students and staff who lived through two years of a temporary location, it's a big milestone.

And so the flag is flying outside a big new, rebuilt school.

Jim Olson, KX News.

Another school destroyed in the flood - Ramstad Middle School - is being rebuilt at a new location. It will open at Thanksgiving.
