TULSA - The Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences continues to chart its future one week after a devastating fire.
School administrators say the past week has been hectic.
"The past week has been extremely hectic and moving about a million miles an hour," said Eric Doss, director of TSAS.
Part of that included moving into the old Sequoyah Elementary building, which will be the home of TSAS for the next year.
"We don't have all the supplies that we had. We've had a lot of donations of school supplies and items and obviously we're not at 100 percent. We're nowhere near 100 percent," said Doss.
Hundreds of parents and students showed up to T.U.'s Allen Chapman Activity Center Wednesday evening to learn more about the school's recovery.
TSAS parent Rhonda Wise was mainly concerned about the emotional well-being of students.
"It is a crisis that they went through and having the school burn down and after a new move and everything," said Wise.
Her son Timothy, a sophomore, said it is strange being in a new building.
"It's not the same building anymore. Going through different hallways, different classrooms," said Timothy. "There's none of the festive decorations that teachers would have on the walls."
He also said many teachers were still lacking textbooks needed to prepare their lessons.
But he says teachers were managing.
At the meeting it was announced that $20,000 had been donated and administrators say every person who needs a computer now has one.
It was also announced musical instruments in the band room were able to be recovered. In addition, the school chef was able to recover many kitchen utensils.
