Schools Hosting Students From Flood-Damaged Schools

Students from schools affected by recent floods in West Virginia will be hosted by other schools this upcoming school year.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that Bridge Elementary School will host students from Clendenin Elementary School starting Wednesday after June's floods closed down Clendenin Elementary.

Clendenin Elementary School Principal Vanessa Brown says Bridge Elementary School turned its cafeteria into a classroom on Friday. The classroom is expected to host 75 students and three teachers.

Elkview Middle School will also be helping students from a different school as the campus will host students from the shuttered Herbert Hoover High School.

Classrooms will be used by middle-schoolers in the morning and high-schoolers in the afternoon, until temporary classrooms can be set up.
