First day back to school after flood at St. Francis

BILLINGS, Mont. -

Physical Education was a bit different Monday for students and teachers at St. Francis Catholic School. They're having to get creative with Physical Education after a watermain break flooded the gym over the weekend.

KULR-8 spoke with Principal Debra Hayes at St. Francis School and she said the insurance agents, fire department, and restoration crew have all been at the school already, making it pretty hectic today.

Hayes said the teachers have been responding very well with having to adjust their daily schedules and relocate. She said the P.E. and music teachers moved their classes to other classrooms and the cafeteria. She also said even though the kids were confused about why certain parts of the school look so different, the children have adapted to these changes very responsibly.

Hayes said the gym floor will have to be replaced. She expects it will be mid-April before the P.E. teachers are back in the gym.
