Superintendent Huff: Tornado-damaged East will open on time
The auditorium, gymnasium, and commons area were destroyed by Sunday's tornado, but when Aug. 17 rolls around, just 84 days from now, East Middle School will be open for business.
During an ongoing press conference at North Middle School, Superintendent C. J. Huff said, "Our class rooms are sound. Our intentions are to have East ready to go."
Huff said engineers are on the EMS campus today making sure the biulding is structurally sound.
Any East sixth and seventh graders who were displaced will be able to return to East in August.
