Interim D.C. Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson says Meyer Elementary School will reopen Jan. 3. It will house students from the Takoma Educational Center which was severely damaged by a fire on Dec. 22.

Henderson says in a press release that Meyer Elementary can accommodate the more than 300 preschool through 8th grade students displaced by the fire.

The closed school was among 23 school buildings shuttered in 2008 for under-enrollment, and Henderson says it is still in good condition. Meyer Elementary is about four miles south of the Takoma Education Center.
