The Board of Trustees for Sealy Independent School District announced tonight the site for the new future elementary school.
"It meets all of the elements that we were searching for in a new site," said Sealy Superintendent, Sheryl Moore. "We wanted something very close to the town, near a residential neighborhood, and in a location that wouldn't compound current traffic issues."
The new site is on FM 2187, about one-half mile from Hwy 36, west of Virnau Sealy Tractor and the Sealy Homestead subdivision. The school itself will be about 100,000 square feet and will house pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.
Huckabee Architects and Brookstone Construction have been hired to build the school, and construction will begin in the spring. The district has not yet determined how they will draw the boundary line for which students will attend the new school. Superintendent Moore indicated that a committee of parents, teachers, and community members would address that issue at a later date.
