BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Students at Paradise High School will resume classes Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019, for the first time since the Camp Fire broke out.

Around 700 students will start Tuesday at a temporary spot near the Chico Airport. 

The staff says the kids are excited to reunite with friends. 

"This building is amazing," said Debbie Sharrett, principal secretary for Paradise High School. "But the people that come here and work here, they're the ones that make Paradise High School more amazing. The students, the teachers, the staff members - all together we have been so strong through this."

Sharrett said that the school process has been a challenge, but they are looking forward to a new beginning.

"This has been a big challenge and we are looking forward to a new beginning, to rise up and be strong," she said. "Our bobcat family can do that."

The stand-in high school includes a cafeteria, bathrooms and locker rooms as well as warehouses for welding, woodshop and art classes,
