About the New Elementary School

The new school will replace the current elementary school, which was built in 1940. It will be located at the corner of Perry Road and Panther Lane, which allows the elementary, middle school and high school sites to be closer to one another.

The new school will:

  • Feature a tornado-safe cafeteria to be used as a school and community shelter. Increase school security by having 1st-4th students under one roof.

  • Eliminate the need for 1st-4th portables. Be fully ADA accessible for those who require a wheelchair or walking assistance.

  • Provide students and staff with a safer, healthier learning environment. Allow the district to add pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classrooms at a later time, as well as a gymnasium.

Because the school will be built at a different location, learning will not be disrupted during construction. Pre-K and K classes will remain at their current location for now.

About the Ag Classrooms

Enrollment in the agriculture education program is growing! The school added a teacher this year; however, the two teachers are using one room. The new construction will include an ag facility, with classrooms, a shop and auxiliary areas, which will provide middle school and high school students the space they need to safely participate in the vocational program. The existing ag area can then be repurposed for another student use, like a cheer and color guard facility.
