A month after a fire heavily damaged buildings at Salpointe Catholic High School , students and teachers returned for their first day of school today.

The first day was pushed back to August 16 from the original August 8 start date due to damage from the July 17 fire. The fire spread throughout the school's English wing, eventually damaging six classrooms to the point where they would be deemed unusable for school.

Temporary classrooms will take the place of those lost in the fire, and scheduling around the unusable spaces until the damaged rooms can be repaired."We are handicapped in a way, in that the six classrooms that were destroyed are not replaced yet we're gonna be having modulars installed on the campus," said Salpointe President Kay Sullivan."But for now every class had a classroom we just tightened up the schedule, and every student had a place and every teacher was thrilled to be back teaching a normal fashion."

Nearly 50,000 LAUSD students reported absent on first day of new school yearThe Los Angeles Unified School District kicked off the new school year with nearly 50,000 students reported absent on the first day of class. Ok but why is that kid on the front page…. He looks like he showed up! Some people changed to other school districts when LAUSD was closed in-person for 17 months, plus the permanent masking and vaccination requirements. Others moved to home school. They anticipated a permanent 20K - 30K drop in attendance this year. 50K would be massive. Going to a LAUSD school is exactly the same as not going to school at all. In fact, the kids that didn't go to school show a slight margin of being better off.

(KGUN) — Salpointe Catholic High School welcomed students back to school--a week later than originally planned, but with enough classroom space for everyone, even without the six classrooms claimed by fire in July. The first day was pushed back to August 16 from the original August 8 start date due to damage from the July 17 fire. The start of school marked Superintendent Alberto Carvalho's first opening day as head of the LAUSD, and he visited a series of campuses and other district facilities to welcome back students and staff. The fire spread throughout the school's English wing, eventually damaging six classrooms to the point where they would be deemed unusable for school. Temporary classrooms will take the place of those lost in the fire, and scheduling around the unusable spaces until the damaged rooms can be repaired. On Tuesday afternoon, Carvalho is expected to make stops at Grand View Boulevard Elementary School in Mar Vista and Brockton Avenue Elementary School on L. "We are handicapped in a way, in that the six classrooms that were destroyed are not replaced yet we're gonna be having modulars installed on the campus," said Salpointe President Kay Sullivan.

Salpointe officials say they hope to have the destroyed classrooms rebuilt and ready for students by fall of 2023. ——- Anne Simmons is a digital content producer for KGUN 9. Carvalho said the tests will be distributed again next week, just to ensure there are not noticeable changes in virus conditions. Anne got her start in television while still a student at the University of Arizona. Before joining KGUN, she managed multiple public access television stations in the Bay Area and has worked as a video producer in the non-profit sector. Carvalho, who took over his post in February after 14 years as superintendent of the Miami-Dade County public schools system, vowed in his address last week to enact quick change -- while conceding that issues of declining enrollment and difficult financial times are on the horizon. “If they’re having a rough day, he’ll kind of help direct them and make their mood better,” says Austin.
