LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Students will be greeted by new teachers when they return to class at a Los Angeles elementary school rocked by the arrests of two longtime teachers on lewdness charges.

Miramonte Elementary School will reopen Thursday, two days after the nation's second-largest school district closed the campus to hire a brand new staff. They include a retired principal, 88 teachers and support staff who were recently laid off and were on a rehiring list.

The arrests of the two former teachers have put the Los Angeles Unified School District under intense scrutiny.

Sheriff's investigators, meanwhile, say they've found 200 additional bondage-style photos they believe were taken by one teacher who's accused of committing lewd acts on 23 children over a five-year period.
