After two weeks, Red Bank Primary School students were able to finally make their return to school Monday just not their own school.
Displaced students attended a morning session at the middle school, before the middle school students arrived for an afternoon session.
The primary school, adjoining the Swimming River, was built on marshland, and suffered major flood damage as a result of Superstorm Sandy two weeks ago. According to Superintendent Laura Morana, over two-thirds of the schools flooring and carpeting were rendered unusable in Sandys wake.
The school has been in existence for over 40 years, Morana told redbankgreen, and this by far the worst damage weve faced as a result of weather.”
