Students return to classes in West, Texas

WEST, Texas -- Students in West, Texas will head back to school for the first time since a deadly fertilizer blast leveled their high school.

Classes start again in two weeks in brand new classrooms with brand new desks.

They won't need to do any school supply shopping, all the supplies they will need came from donations from across the country.

"Right now, we are expecting to be able to supply every child. We probably have enough glue to glue the sky to the earth right now. We have so much! And we want to be sure it's all used," said West Texas ISD administrator Jan Hungate.

There is also new grass on the football field that got wiped out.

The teachers say they are excited for a fresh start.
