EAST END, OH (FOX19) - For the second time this school year, students attending Riverview East Academy on Kellogg Avenue will be temporarily relocated beginning Monday, April 25, due to high water near the school resulting from Ohio River flooding.

Students at the school will be transported to the former Burton Elementary School on Glenwood Avenue, for classes beginning Monday. The district's facilities employees will spend the weekend preparing the building for students.

Riverview East Academy bus riders will be picked up and dropped off at their normal stops. Walkers and car riders are being asked to gather at the ball field on Stanley Avenue at the intersection of Kellogg Avenue by 7:00 a.m. They will be transported by bus to the Burton location; after school dismisses, they will be dropped off at the same location at approximately 2:30 p.m.

The relocation will continue until floodwater recedes and it is safe to return to the Kellogg Avenue building.

Riverview East was relocated on March 11 to Burton for five school days.

Prior to this year, river conditions have not necessitated temporarily relocating the school since it opened in January 2006. The K-12 school primarily serves three communities located near the Ohio River: Columbia-Tusculum, the East End and Linwood.
