EAST RUTHERFORD - Students from James Monroe Elementary School in Edison got quite a surprise today.

The students were treated to a field day at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford.

The students and staff lost their school last month in a fire.

Students had planned a field day for May, but were unable to use the grounds due to the blaze.

MetLife Stadium offered to let the 450 students have a field day on the football field. 

The school district is expected to meet tonight to discuss the future of the school and leasing a new property. The students are currently attending classes at the Middlesex County College.
