School construction behind schedule
HERNANDO — Officials say one of three new DeSoto County public schools expected to open when classes resume in August apparently won’t be ready on time.
Ken Reid, assistant superintendent of business and finance, says construction of DeSoto Central Primary School continues to run behind schedule, and the building is now expected to be turned over to school officials by about Sept. 1 at the earliest.
The Commercial Appeal reports a new campus is being built for grades K-2 at the Southaven school to relieve crowding on the elementary school campus. The school finished the year with about 1,400 students in grades K-6, many of them in trailers.
Reid said two other new schools, Lewisburg Primary and Lake Cormorant High, are on schedule and should be ready by the time school begins.
