WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Students who arrive at one Wichita elementary school to begin the new school year will see the results of long hours of extra work during the weekend by teachers and maintenance staff.

The district had to scramble to find a new building after a fire damaged College Hill elementary school last week. District officials chose to reopen a school building that had been closed and employees worked throughout the weekend to prepare for students' arrival Monday morning. Parents and students met with school employees Sunday to get a look at the school.

The main concern is a longer commute for students. The district is busing students from the damaged school to the building, which was called Bryant magnet school before it closed.
