MUHLENBERG CO., Ky. (WFIE) - Muhlenberg County students are back in the classroom Tuesday for the first time since the deadly tornado Dec. 10.

Bremen Elementary in Muhlenberg Co. has been serving as a temporary shelter and a makeshift warehouse while students were on Christmas break.

Now, it’s time to get back to learning.

Carla Embry with Muhlenberg Public Schools says around 70 students were directly impacted by the storm.

She says it’s important for them to have some normalcy again after everything they’ve been through.

“Our students and our staff, but mostly our students, learned something by going through this disaster that can’t be taught in school and that’s life skills,” Embry says. “Just how we are to rise up and be good neighbors and rise up. I feel like you see #BremenStrong and it’s so true.”

Embry also says the school made counselors available for students and staff on Tuesday.

Masks are required for all students, staff, and visitors on campus and on buses.
