Third graders returned to Chamisa Elementary Wednesday after a combination of warm temperatures, tree leaves and ice caused flooding problems at the school.
The flooding mainly affected the K-3 classrooms in the school’s “primary pod,” severely damaging ceilings and carpeting in the school. Two classrooms in another part of the school were also damaged.
School was canceled Monday and Tuesday. But Chamisa Elementary School principal Debbie Smith announced that they would bring the students back on a staggered schedule.
Third graders came back Wednesday morning and Kindergarten through second grade will be back Thursday.
Smith and the teachers had plans to meet third grade students and any interested parents in the gym when school started this morning. “We will be temporarily relocating the students to different spaces in the school,” Smith said.
The memo also stated:
• Kindergarten through second grade students will resume classes Thursday. Smith and the teachers will meet students (and interested parents) in the gym Thursday morning at 8:20 to direct them to temporary classroom locations in the school.
