WEBBERS FALLS, Okla. — Students and teachers are starting their school year one month later in Webbers Falls on Monday.
The public schools district postponed their start date twice after May's flooding caused property damage. School had been originally scheduled to start on August 9 but needed more time for clean up and get up to code.
Then last week, the district posted on its Facebook page that it would postpone its start date of September 3 to September 9.
It has been a long cleanup process for the school, but thanks to the community's support, they have been able to pull through.
Many donations from nearby school districts and local organizations have poured in since the flood, such as cafeteria tables, student desks, library books, schools supplies and even money.
Classes are scheduled to start at 8:20 a.m.
