SANDY HOOK - More than 10 months after Sandy struck the Jersey Shore, students at a Sandy Hook school have returned to the classroom.

The Marine Academy of Science and Technology was severely flooded when the storm roared onshore last October. Thanks to a $4.2 million reconstruction project, the campus' electrical and plumbing have been completely repaired.

In the interim, classes were held at St. Joseph Elementary School in Keyport. Principal Earl Moore says students and faculty were definitely out of their element in a different building, and that they are ecstatic to be back.

Moore says the repairs were covered by FEMA and the school's insurance policy.
