The special education program at Veterans Memorial Elementary School has been temporarily relocated to the new Saugus Middle-High School after the Hurd Avenue building sustained significant flood damage.
Last week, a grouping of Vets School special education students started their hybrid education at the Middle-High School, according to Executive Director of Pupil Personnel Services & Special Education Dawn Trainor.
A pod has been designated on the high school side of the Middle-High School to house the Vets School special education students, Trainor said.
Town Manager Scott Crabtree explained that in August, a faucet was left on when water service was restored following work at the Vets School and the first and second floors of a wing were flooded with hot water.
Crabtree said he dispatched cleaners to the Vets School as soon as the flood damage and mold were discovered.
