Students back in class at a Michigan school

SAGINAW COUNTY, Mich. -- They spent two weeks sitting at home but students in a financially plagued Michigan school district are back in class.

The students at Buena Vista and 27 of their laid off teachers returned to class Tuesday morning.

The school unexpectedly shutdown for two weeks because the state said it was going to withhold aid after the district over spent.

The district then came up with a plan to meet state requirements allowing it to re-open.

Kids did not understand but are glad to be back.

"I don't know what's been going on, but it's good to be back at school, because I was kind of bored being at home," said Raven Jones.

The district is running on a $1-million deficit.
