Crews are building a new performance arts building that will house the band, choir, art classes, and add five more classrooms. “It gives these students here along with our schools, access to it. A place to come out either for graduations or performing arts,” said Joseph Cuzzort, supervisor of operations for Madison County Schools.

It’s the space Cuzzort says students currently don’t have and really need. “Currently, tye’re having to go some place else to rent or borrow to do their plays or anything else they have."

Safety improvements also coming to the school include a sky bridge. That will keep students from having to walk across the street to get to class. “It keeps the kids more safe and out of the climates during the classroom changes,” said Cuzzort.

Construction of the new building is expected to be complete by fall of 2020.
