GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Classes will resume in Greenville schools on Wednesday.
Schools have been closed since Oct. 18 because of damage to the T.L Weston campus when a Level 2 tornado hit the city and caused heavy structural and water damages to three buildings in the district. A large part of the roof at Weston was destroyed, and a classroom and an area near the cafeteria of the Greenville-Weston High School campus were damaged. Superintendent Leeson Taylor II says it may take up to six months for the Weston campus to be renovated.
Almost 6,000 students attend Greenville schools and about 452 were displaced from Weston because of the storm damage.
