Greensburg Plans for School in August

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

GREENSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- Greensburg's school superintendent has
already promised that the tornado that destroyed his town won't wipe out the next school year. And now, it looks as though the district's classes will be held in Greensburg, starting in August.

Superintendent Darin Headrick says he hopes to hold classes in three temporary mobile units: one for kindergarten through fifth grade, one for sixth through eighth grade and one for the high school.

All three would share a temporary gymnasium and food service facility.

The district is getting help from Fort Hays State University, which is providing people and technology.

One pressing need is for library books and other learning
materials. The school year starts August 15th -- less than 90 days from now.
