Church, Jr. High Help OK Tornado Victims

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- School officials in the Oklahoma city of Moore say students whose schools were destroyed in the deadly May tornado will attend classes next month in a refurbished junior high school building and a local church.

Plaza Towers and Briarwood elementary schools have been razed down to the concrete slabs. District spokeswoman Pam Westbrook said Monday the district is working out the final details for how the new schools will be constructed. She says district officials hope to have both new elementary schools open for students by the start of the 2014 school year.

At Plaza Towers, seven wooden crosses stand in the northeast corner of the lot, each adorned with the name of one of the children killed on May 20 when the tornado slammed into the school.
