Brooklyn is now home to three modular buildings purchased earlier this year, and while the units are ready for teaching, they’re awaiting a few final, behind-the-scenes touches. 

“The water is all connected, and although our land-line phone system is not fully operational, (staff members) are in contact via cell phones,” said Gundula O’Neal, Brooklyn’s principal.

The modulars’ arrival couldn’t have come soon enough.
