W. Babylon students move on at new location

South Bay Elementary School students returned to class Tuesday at a new location after a massive fire destroyed their old building.

All 318 students from the West Babylon school were moved to Our Lady of Grace Church, just blocks away from where their old school stood until last Thursday.

Once the local school district decided to make the move and signed the lease on the new building, teachers had little time to transform their new classrooms to look like their old ones.

"It's very exciting, it feels like the first day of school," says teacher Jill DeLuca.
