Students at Dracut's Greenmont Avenue School got a taste of what is to come on Tuesday, when they had class in space at Dracut High School.
According to Superintendent of Schools Steven Stone, Greenmont School was without power Tuesday due to Monday's severe wind storm.
The Greenmont students were placed in high school classrooms and the high school students relocated to other locations.
Stone tweeted that he was extremely proud of the students and staff at both schools for handling the circumstances smoothly.

"Unbelievable job by @GreenmontGators & @DracutHS staff & students today. 300 elementary students moved into classrooms at DHS. Within minutes of their arrival, instruction was underway. DHS students shifted to other classrooms without complaint. Outstanding. #middieteamwork"

According to a Facebook posting, the students arrived at Dracut High by 8:30, were in classrooms by 8:45 and classes began at 8:47.
The Greenmont Avenue School serves students in Kindergarten through Grade 5.
It's believed that Greenmont will be all set for classes as usual on Wednesday.
