MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Students at Kirby High School now know where and when they’ll be going to class over the next few months as their high school is closed due to rodent problems.
Shelby County Schools officials announced the temporary schedule and locations for students at a meeting Monday.
Kirby High School students haven’t been at school since Sept. 5 after the school was reopened for two days initially following the rodent problem.
SCS also confirmed to FOX13 they are planning on holding another media event before the actual community event Tuesday between 4 and 5 p.m. at the Board of Education.
Officials said the students will not all go to the same temporary location – it will be split up based on grade level.
Ninth and 10th grade students will be going to Dubois Middle School of Leadership and Public Policy on Shelby Drive.
