WICHITA, Kansas – College Hill Elementary teachers are getting their classrooms ready Friday at their new, temporary school they’re calling College Hill West.
A fire ravaged College Hill on Monday doing almost $500,000 in damage and rendering it un-usable for classes.
The district temporarily reopened Bryant Elementary which was shut down last year to start classes.
Despite the setback, teachers are saying it’s not all bad.
“The staff at College Hill has always been tremendously close. We’ve been a family forever, so if it was possible for us to get closer, we certainly did,” said Joyce Harvey, 5th grade teacher.
Classes will begin at Bryant Monday morning. An open house will be held Sunday afternoon.
