TULSA - Students at the Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences are back in the classroom at their new facility at Sequoyah Elementary after their old school burned down more than a week ago.
The students are still missing books, computers and important school supplies to get them throughout the normal school day.
On Friday, Tulsa Community Foundation announced a private grant that will match dollar-for-dollar up to $93,750 to help TSAS get back on track.
Director Eric Doss says the school was insured, but it will be several months before school officials can receive the money from the insurance company.
Doss said the school needs nearly $200,000 to meet their immediate needs in the classroom.
Roughly $40,000 have already been donated to TSAS.
Doss says the community has been very giving and he's hopeful that they'll continue to help.
