As you'll likely remember, students and faculty had to evacuate East Side Community High School and Girls Prep Charter on East 12th Street back in September when a maintenance worker found part of the eastern wall separating from the rest of the structure.
Original estimates via NY1 put the students back in the building in late February.
However, as East Side Principal Mark Federman tweeted on Jan. 4, the students would be returning sooner... and today was their first day back for classes here between Avenue A and First Avenue... we heard from a few East Village parents who were quite pleased that their kids were in the neighborhood again for classes.
Meanwhile, here is the new wall ... photographed on Monday...
