A southeast Portland school is set to reopen after being partially destroyed in a three-alarm fire.
Kindergarten through eighth grade students will return to Marysville School on southeast Raymond Street on Monday, Jan. 7. Students will start arriving at 8:30 a.m. and Principal Lana Penly will officially open the school with a statement and a bell ringing.
In November 2009, something sparked a fire in the gym and severely damaged the school. Investigators ruled the cause of the fire was inconclusive but ruled out the school's electrical system as a possible source.
Officials said construction was completed on time and on budget. The project manager said most of the insurance money went to repairing the burned portion of the school and the school board was able to find money for a new media center, science lab and technology lab.
