With post-Sandy restoration work completed on most of their building, Lido Elementary students were finally able to return to their home school at the Long Beach School District’s Lido Complex on Jan. 2.
“Everything went like clockwork on our first day back,” said Principal Brenda Young. “We are all happy to be home at last.”
After the Oct. 29 storm caused flood damage to their school, Lido Elementary students had been attending classes at Lindell School while each classroom at the Lido Complex underwent thorough cleaning, sanitizing and restoration work. Students and teachers returned to their classrooms, delving into their studies with renewed enthusiasm.
“I am very proud of the way our students, parents and staff adapted to the challenges that we faced over the past few weeks,” Young added. “I am also very grateful to the students and staff of Lindell School and to Principal Karen Sauter who welcomed us so warmly while we were displaced from Lido School.”
