Saint Helena Central High School just took a large step forward on their road to recovery. Students are now attending class in a modular building that cost $220,000. The alternative classroom was brought in to provide temporary housing for students. The school burned to the ground back in November. Investigators say the fire was intentionally set by a former guidance counselor.

Gary Porter, the principal, says the school is now focused on the future. “The kids were excited the day the buildings rolled onto campus. Moral went up 100%."

The new building contains ten classrooms and some administrative offices.
