Hempstead official discusses plans for displaced Prospect School students after lightning strike

The Hempstead school district’s Prospect School will not be ready to open for the first day of classes, leaving approximately 600 students displaced due to damage caused when the building was struck by lightning last week, district officials said Monday, as they detailed the district's plans for temporarily relocating the students so they will not miss classes.
