The EF3 tornado that ripped across New Orleans East Tuesday significantly damaged ReNEW Schaumburg Elementary School.

Administrators say they cannot hold classes there.

Classes will resume Wednesday, February 15 at Gaudet Elementary, 12000 Hayne Blvd. for the remainder of this school year. School times and bus stop locations will remain the same.
