WADENA, Minn. (AP) — Students in a Minnesota city hit hard by a tornado in June are heading back to temporary classrooms Tuesday.
Many wondered if classes would start on time after a tornado hit Wadena (wah-DEE'-nah) and destroyed more than 260 structures, including the high school.
Teachers and administrators spent the summer moving desks and supplies to temporary locations. For the next two years, high school students will have classes at a local technical college. Grades 7 and 8 will go to school in Deer Creek, some 10 miles away.
KSTP-TV says some students lost their homes in the June 17 tornado.
