MOORE — Students heading back to the classroom on Friday nearly three months after a massive tornado destroyed their schools will find a “new normal,” their superintendent says, according to NBC News.



Two elementary schools — Plaza Towers and Briarwood — were leveled in the May 20 twister.

“If you would have asked me, would we still be standing here today, I would have had my doubts,” Superintendent Robert Romines said Monday.

“We are faced with a new normal. That new normal is about moving forward, rebuilding and doing what we need to do for this community, with the understanding that we won’t forget May 20.”
