UPDATE- Classes at Poland Central School resumed on Monday.

School officials said air quality tests passed, and people worked to clean up the school throughout the weekend.

Officials said the day will start with an assembly including safety discussions, acclimation to new lockers that haven been relocated due to the fire, and a fire drill if the weather holds up.

The district won't have to make up the missed days of instruction because those days will be classified with the state as "extraordinary condition days" under the category "destruction of school building."

Still no word on the cause of the fire.
