BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - The Ashland School District plans to reopen Monday, after elementary students missed a week of class due to vandalism.

Superintendent and principal Stephen Henderson tells The Billings Gazette (https://bit.ly/1ysApgN ) the school should be fully operational on Monday, but some repairs may not be complete.

Vandals smashed windows, broke computer monitors, damaged air conditioners and discharged fire extinguishers in the building early on Feb. 8 and took items including computer tablets and a school vehicle. The damage was initially estimated at $50,000, but Henderson says workers are still noticing broken and missing items.

Rosebud County Undersheriff Allen Fulton says two boys and a girl between the ages of 12 and 14 were arrested Sunday afternoon.

Henderson says the three have been suspended from school. Hearings will be held to determine if they will be expelled or allowed back.
