A new kindergarten through 5th grade school is being built.
It will be attached to the existing middle school that is undergoing a major renovation.
Officials say they plan to have middle school children back in their building a year from now and other students in the new school one year later.
Students will be in portable classrooms at various locations while the construction is being done.
Officials say 75-percent of the demolition debris is being recycled.
They say the new school will also be more energy efficient.
