D.C. School officials said they will reopen a closed school to replace a northwest Washington school that was severely damaged by fire.

Interim D.C. Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson announced late Tuesday that Meyer Elementary School will reopen Jan. 3. It will house students from the Takoma Educational Center, which was severely damaged last week by a fire.

Henderson said in a press release that Meyer Elementary can accommodate the more than 300 preschool through 8th grade students displaced by the fire. The closed school was among 23 school buildings shuttered in 2008 for under-enrollment, and Henderson said it is still in good condition.

Meyer Elementary is about four miles south of the Takoma Education Center.
