MOORE, Oklahoma (NBC NEWS) --As students and teachers get back to school this morning in Moore, Oklahoma most in the tornado ravaged town have already been dealing with difficult lessons.

"They have been so scattered this summer, so busy, families taking care of their personal lives, putting their personal lives back together," says pastor Jim Lehew.

Lives were splintered by a deadly EF-5 tornado that ripped-apart their community, killing 25, including seven students at Plaza Towers Elementary.

"We lost so much on that day, seven students, and that's the hardest part for all of us, so the support that those families have gotten through us, and with us's priceless," says Plaza Towers Principal Amy Simpson.
