February 9, 2017 -- Due to significant tornado damage at ReNEW Schaumburg Elementary (RSE), school operations will resume at a new location on Wednesday, February 15.
RSE operations and classes will move to Gaudet Elementary, 12000 Hayne Blvd., for the remainder of the school year. Parents should note that school times and bus stop locations will remain the same.
The tornado that struck New Orleans East Tuesday morning caused significant structural damage to the RSE roof and HVAC system, as well as playground equipment and other structures across the school grounds. Repairs to the facility at 9501 Grant Street are now underway.
