The Kativik School Board says students in Aupaluk, Que., will be back in classes soon, 10 days after the community's only school burned to the ground.

Last week, as students and teachers were on March break, board officials found two buildings where classes can be held.

The younger students will use some of the rooms in Aupaluk's daycare. The others will use the old municipal building.

Jade Bernier, public relations officer for the school board, says full-time classes should begin Monday.

Bernier says it's too soon to tell when construction will begin on a new school but it could be as early as this summer.
