Principal Patricia Triche said it was important for the school and the kids to get everybody back together again.
"It was good to see them back on one shift," said Triche
"It's one step back to the process of getting back to East St. John High School
This is a big step for us as far as getting the kids back in our 90-minute block classes where they have more instruction."
While this is the first day back for East St. John students under one roof, at the same time, they will have to wait until next fall to return to their permanent high school building on Airline Highway.
"They're suppose to start demolition at the high school for all the surfaces and structures that need to come down on February 1," said Triche
