It's an exciting morning for Marshall County Schools as Brindlee Mountain elementary and high school students head back to class.

"They've missed their friends and missed seeing their teachers, so they're glad to be back," said parent, Amy Tolten.

This comes after an EF-2 tornado tore through Brindlee Mountain Primary School almost two weeks ago.

Students at all Brindlee Mountain schools were out of class while the district made room for primary students at the high school. Primary school students will have to wait to go back to class until next Monday, but most of what they need is already moved in at the high school.

Huntsville City Schools and DeKalb County Schools representatives are bringing over desks. Teachers and staff are working hard to reorganize classes at the high school so they can combine the primary and high school into one campus.

"We are so honored and blessed to have received support from our community and from surrounding school districts following this devastating tornado. I cannot express enough gratitude to Huntsville City and DeKalb County Schools for their generous gifts of these items. Their support will truly make a difference in the lives of our children. Watching these desks, chairs and lunchroom tables being moved into the Brindlee Mountain Middle School is a reminder that we are all in this together," said Superintendent Dr. Cindy Wigley. 

Luckily for the district, a few years ago, they already combined the middle school and high school, so the middle school building was mostly empty. Some high school students will be in different classrooms on Thursday because of the shuffle.

Pre-K will have an open house at Brindlee Mountain Elementary Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Kindergarten through second grade will have their open house at the former middle school campus this Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
