Workers today began erecting dust screens around the remains of the University Laboratory School in preparation to begin clearing the site on Thursday for new portable classrooms.

On June 13, an arson-set fire destroyed one of the lab school's buildings, leaving behind a heaping pile of charred rubble. The building that was destroyed housed the school's performing arts and athletic programs.

Once the debris is cleared, University of Hawai'i officials said, four new portable classrooms are scheduled to be installed by the end of November at a cost of $850,000.

Classes are scheduled to resume at the site of the lab school next semester.
