Fire-damaged school's reopening delayed

Jan. 6, 2012

St. Alphonsus School students will return to classes on Monday, instead of today as anticipated.

The Rev. Alan Jurkus said the principal decided to delay opening the school until Monday after viewing the extent of the work involved in getting 17 classes ready for students following the Christmas morning fire at the Greendale parish.

The classrooms, about two-thirds of the school, received extensive smoke damage from the fire that caused more than $200,000 in damage to the parish, and its cause is undetermined.

No one was in the church, where the fire started, and no injuries were reported.
