Parents get a tour of Westover school's temporary location

Posted: Updated:
STAMFORD -

Westover Magnet Elementary School students start their first day of school Wednesday in a new building after their school closed due to mold contamination.

Two floors will be home to about 700 kids and their teachers. Glass offices have been made into classrooms and nearly everything inside is new.

The students who went to visit the new location say they like the new location, which reminds them of a mall or an airport. Parents says they were impressed by how quickly the space was converted.

The once-office building does not have a playground, but there are plans to close a nearby park to the public during the day so students can use it during recess.
