In March, the Grand Isle School has reopened. The school teaches students in kindergarten through high school.

According to the Associated Press, the island took the full force of Ida when it barreled ashore; long sections of the levee that protects the island were damaged and an estimated quarter of the island’s structures were destroyed or damaged so severely damaged they’ll have to be demolished.
