Flood Affected Schools Finish School Year | VideoRich Wisniewski | 5/24/2012
"It has gone amazingly well," she said.
Larcombe teaches at Longfellow Elementary school. She and her students spent the entire year in a temporary classroom since their original building was damaged by flooding. Now that the year is over, the principal of Longfellow, Tracey Lawson, says the classrooms get a passing grade.
We asked her to give rank it on a scale of one to ten.
"I`m going to give it a ten, it really did the job for us this year."
She says she was a little concerned when she first heard about the portable classrooms because in the past, the Minot School District has had free-standing portables. Where every class was separate. In short, they weren`t the best.
"I thought, how are we going to have 20 of these portables on our grounds and how am I going to meet the needs of these students and staff?"
