Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Some elementary students now have clarity, after having an unclear school-day forecast since the first day of the academic year last Wednesday, September 7.

The Binghamton City School District releases its plan for MacArthur Elementary students and staff, who were displaced due to flooding at the school last week.

Students who would normally attend MacArthur Elementary on the city's south side will go back to class on Monday.

They will be dispersed throughout the city, split up according to grade levels.

Students at the kindergarten level through second grade will be report to St. Thomas School on the city's west side. It's located at West Middle School at 3 Aquinas Street.

Students in third grade through fifth grade will attend St. Francis of Assisi School also known as St. Catherine's, at 1051 Chenango Street, on the city's north side.

Meanwhile, Pre K classes will be held at Ben Franklin Elementary on Conklin Avenue.

Students will be bused to their new locations.

You can go to this website to see a list of specific bus schedules and drop-off requirements.

Parents and guardians should take note - Monday will be the only day someone must be at a designated drop off location to meet their children.

Also, all MacArthur Elementary students in need of school supplies are welcome to replenish those supplies at Faith Bible Church in the town of Binghamton for free.

The church is located at 1807 Hawleyton Road.

You may contact Alex or Jon at 723-3045 or 349-9300 respectively if you or anyone you know needs school supplies for children.

There will be a parent information meeting next Monday, September 19 at Columbus School on Hawley Street at 6 p.m. .
