Wednesday night dozens of parents took a 15 minute school bus ride from Fairfield to Clark Springs where they learned their kids will be attending for the rest of the school year.
"It's unfortunate things have happened that are not normal for them," says Superintendent Dr. Dana Bedden.
The building at Fairfield is more than 60 years old, the roof is falling apart and there are issues with the heating and air conditioning.
Many parents wonder why repairs weren't made years ago or why students weren't moved earlier before a ceiling tile fell on a child last month.
"It needs to be fixed. Not patched. Fixed," says parent Gabby Bobby Gayles, pointing at her fifth grade daughter. "You can't pay the hospital bill if something falls on her head."
Leaders admit they should have done something sooner and now plan to look at the long-term future of Fairfield.
"This is something our parents and our students should not have to experience," Bedden says. "Should we go forward with the plans with regards to major repairs to the roof? Or do we have other options?"
Thursday will be the last day Fairfield will be used. Students will have Friday and all of next week off for Spring Break. They'll begin at Clark Springs on April 21.
