CHESTERFIELD (KMOX) – 5th grade students at Shenandoah Valley Elementary School will spend the next several weeks in temporary quarters, while their classrooms are cleaned after last week’s winter weather-related water pipe break.

The flood affected the 4th and 5th grade wings at Shenandoah Valley.

Parkway spokeswoman Cathy Kelly said that space has been found for the 4th graders in another wing of the building, but 5th graders will temporarily move to nearby Highcroft Ridge Elementary School.

A note to parents explained:

“All fifth grade students will remain on the same schedule including transportation to and from Shenandoah Valley.  Students will come to Shenandoah in the morning as usual and have specials (such as music, PE and art) here.  After specials, 5th grade students will be transported to Highcroft Ridge for the remainder of their instructional day.  At the end of the school day, students will be transported back to Shenandoah Valley and dismissed as usual.”

Students will have the same teachers.

Kelly told KMOX News that the district expects to have Shenandoah Valley ready by February.
