HUNTERTOWN, Ind. (WFFT)- Following the approval of school referendums last week, another portable classroom was brought onto the lawn of Huntertown Elementary Thursday morning.

Construction on a new NACS school is set to begin at the end of this year, but in the meantime, some Huntertown students are in the temporary buildings. A teacher in one of the portable classrooms told FOX 55 the students have responded well to the change during this time.

"I think the kids think it's kind of cool that they're out here. It's different than everybody else, maybe feel a little more important, a little older. They handle it well," said Malea Kruse, a fifth grade teacher.

Lizette Downey, NACS spokeswoman, said in the event of an emergency drill, such as a tornado drill, the children are moved safely into the main building.
