St. Mark's School, Damaged in Dallas Tornado, Set to Reopen Wednesday

Officials with St. Mark's School of Texas say classes will resume on Wednesday, Oct. 30. The school's 40-acre campus took a direct hit by an EF-3 tornado last week.

School leaders said the Hicks Athletic Center is a complete loss and several other buildings were damaged.However the only building that will not be usable when classes resume is the Decherd Fine Arts Center, which will take several weeks to repair.

Crews have been working from dawn until dusk the last few days, clearing uprooted trees and debris from campus.

Faculty and staff gathered at the school for a half-day on Monday and determined an extra day was needed for preperations before the boys' return on Wednesday.
