The province says portable classrooms are now in place for all of the 900 students affected by this summer's floods.
Damage caused by the flood initially meant students in High River had to attend classes in banquet rooms and gymnasiums, but 42 modular classrooms opened in that town today — along with 12 in Calgary.

Some High River parents had voiced concerns about the lengthy wait for classrooms for their children.
Infrastructure MInister Wayne Drysdale says it wasn't an easy task.
"It sounds like a long time, but four months to build, move, set up, install and finish 54 classrooms I think is pretty impressive," he said.
Three schools in High River remain closed as well as Elbow Park School in Calgary.
The Calgary Board of Education continues to work with parents on an occupancy plan for those students.
