Montgomery Public Schools spokesman Tom Salter says classes will resume on Monday, August 27 at the former Hayneville Road Elementary School, which has been closed. It will take a week to get that school ready for the incoming BTW students.

He says BTW faculty and staff should report to the main building this Monday morning at their regular time to assist in getting items ready to be transferred.

Parents will receive more information via telephone and email later today and over the next few days as information is available on the move to the new temporary location.
