Demolition and renovations continue at the facility that housed Effingham County Middle School students less than two years ago and is being renovated to foster pre-kindergarten in fall of 2012.
The facelift will entail tearing down two wings, modifying two wings, re-roofing and turning would-be open areas into a playground, and a car pickup lane.
“(By reusing these spaces) we’re gonna kick the can on down the road in terms of when we need our next elementary school, which our goal there is to maximize that time,” said Dr. Slade Helmly, Effingham schools’ director of administrative services.
