Portable buildings at Orangefield Elementary School in Orangefield, Texas are almost ready for the 2018 school year.
Heavy rains from Hurricane flooded the elementary school. The portable buildings will be used until school administrators are ready for students to return to their normal classrooms.
In November of 2017, FEMA funded $1.5 million for the project.
The Port Arthur Field Office of the Galveston District USACE provided oversight for the construction of the project. A total of eight 700 sq. ft. classrooms, a 600 sq. ft. office, temporary restrooms and a 3000 sq. ft. multipurpose High School building along with covered walkways were constructed.
