Temporary classrooms that will be used when
Moffett students return to school on Aug. 12.
Moffett School Superintendent Greg Reynolds announced Wednesday that the decision has been made to postpone the first day of classes until Aug. 12.
Moffett School administration, teachers, parents, members of the community and countless other have worked diligently attempting to repair the damage caused by the historic flood of May 2019.
The setback in the date was caused by four temporary classrooms and new air conditioning units being delivered later than was originally expected, according to Reynolds.
"We apologize to all parents that this late start date may affect negatively but we feel it is in the best interest of the students," stated Reynolds.
A hygienist has tested the surface and air quality in the school and has deemed everything safe for the return of students.
Reynolds said that although the flood has caused a lot of work, it has also been a blessing in many ways.
"The surrounding communities, volunteers, and staff have really banned together to help in the restoration of our school," said Reynolds. "All donations and volunteer help has been greatly appreciated. No words can express how thankful we all are at Moffett School.
Reynolds went on to add that although the work has been exhausting, he believes that Moffett will come back better than it was prior to the flood.
He also stated that the phones lines to the school are currently down but they hope to have them working soon.
Parents with questions or concerns are encouraged to stop by the school between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.
