Moore School Officials Move Forward With Fall Plan

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - School officials in Moore say students whose schools were destroyed by a tornado will attend classes in a refurbished junior high school building and a local church when classes resume in the fall.

Moore Public Schools spokeswoman Pam Westbrook said Monday that architects are still working with Federal Emergency Management Agency officials on details of the two new schools that will be built in their place, including the construction of safe-room hallways.

But Westbrook says the goal is to have both schools constructed and ready for students in by the start of the 2014 school year.

At the Plaza Towers Elementary School site, the demolished building has been hauled off, but the slab still remains. The school grounds are ringed with a chain-link fence covered in T-shirts and mementos.
