DEXTER, Mich. (WWJ) – Dexter Schools are reopening Monday after they closed last week following devastating tornadoes that swept through the small town.

In a letter to parents, Superintendent Mary Marshall said counselors will be available for students when they return for the first time following the storms that wiped out an estimated 100 homes.

Counselors will ride the buses in the morning to answer any questions about what happened and to help students who might be seeing the destruction for the first time as they ride the bus.

Parents also were told that some bus routes had to be changed because of the storm damage. And some buses may be escorted by police cruisers due to the heavy fog blanketing Southeastern Michigan.
