FX CO school board seeks feedback on options for new elementary school

"We’re on a very fast train” for making key decisions about the new elementary school in Annandale, Mason District school board member Sandy Evans told residents of the Broyhill Crest neighborhood at the community association’s annual meeting March 22.

The new school, under construction on the site of the former Lacey Center, will open at the start of the 2012 school year. Evans says it will be red brick with light brick trim and will have a forest green roof. A new principal is expected to be in place by spring 2012, which will provide plenty of time for planning and assembling a staff.
