West Babylon school to relocate after fire

Officials at the West Babylon elementary school that was destroyed by a fire Thursday have found a new building to house all of the students and staff.

Teachers from South Bay Elementary School will set up at their new location at Our Lady of Grace Church on Monday. The goal is to have classes start Tuesday.

Parent Linda Hauff thinks the new place is a perfect fit.

"They have religion classes over there and I know a lot of rooms are empty," Hauff says.

Officials say they will offer bus transportation to all 318 students.
