SMITHVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Smithville School is saying good-bye to 48 trailers.

The school system utilized the trailers as a temporary location for two years.

Crews have started the process of un-hitching and cleaning the trailers, and some have already been trucked out of town.

The trailers were used as temporary classrooms and office buildings following the April 2011 tornado.

School administrators say they are excited about starting the school year at the original campus on August seventh.

"It was really nice for us us to have that temporary campus, but two years of that and we're ready to move back on the permanent campus. We're glad to have those but we're also glad to see them go," said Superintendent of Education of Monroe County Schools Scott Cantrell.

The trailers are headed to Birmingham, Alabama for refurbishing before going to the next destination.
