MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A charter school in Memphis has opened for students, but has no phones in the building in case of emergencies.

W.E.B DuBois K-10 charter school Vice President Calvin McGowan told WMC-TV in Memphis (https://bit.ly/1uE4OJ7 ) that officials are aware of the issue and are trying to fix it within the next week. McGowan says when Shelby County schools moved out of the old Westhaven Elementary, they took desks, chairs, library books and the phone lines with them.

McGowan says the campus is safe and that it’s only a matter of time before Westhaven parents feel comfortable

Parent Bridget Bradley says she wants to make sure students from Westhaven are safe.

Parents from the old Westhaven Elementary say they feel better about the situation after meeting with school administrators Friday morning.
