HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Tuckahoe Elementary School students will be headed to a different school Thursday as a result of a fire at the school Sunday.

Fire officials say the damage inside of the school makes it unfit for students to learn in. It could take crews three weeks to clean all of the damage fire and smoke left behind.

So, school officials have decided that students will temporarily transition to a new location. On Thursday, Tuckahoe students will have their classes at Short Pump Middle School.

There will be a special meeting for Tuckahoe parents who have any questions Wednesday night. The informational session will be held at Short Pump Middle School, located at 4701 Pouncey Tract Road in Glen Allen. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.

The students from both schools all meeting in one building. It may be a bit of an inconvenience for now, but necessary according to school officials until Tuckahoe can get through this mess.
