Bond package approved for school construction
LEFLORE COUNTY — Leflore County school officials will move forward with plans to build a new building at Amanda Elzy Elementary School after officials approved a $3-million bond package this week.
Superintendent Jean Hall tells the Greenwood Commonwealth she had received no letters of protest regarding the interest-free bond package. The school board approved the plan Aug. 16.
Hall says youngsters will be able to eat breakfast and lunch at the new building. They have been sharing facilities with Amanda Elzy High School.
She says bond funds can be used only for construction, not for salaries, supplies or other operational costs.
