Guam - The Department of Education and the Department of Mental Health have come to a solution to ensure client of the Rays of Hope Home are not placed in home schools when school begins tomorrow. DOE legal counsel Fred Nishihara says last week Mental Health had assure the department that students will be housed in a temporary facility in Ordot - at least for the first semester - while the facility in Tamuning is being repaired and renovated.

"We are working today to have our collateral equipment moved from the existing site to the new site," Nishihara stated.  "We're working on getting the school supplies and whatever materials are necessary. We're working on the bus routes to make sure the students are picked up from wherever they are to the new site."

These students were housed at the JFK Annex for the summertime.

There's still no word on when Mental Health expects to have the Tamuning facility completed.
