MASON CITY, IA – A Mason City school building project 2 years in the making is complete and will be ready for classes in August.
The temporary annex buildings used by the John Adams Middle school 8th graders are moving out.
They’ve been going to classes in the portable units until the main building and high school underwent renovations.
It’s a multi-million dollar project school officials say will help facilitate learning with some serious upgrades.
Mason City/Clear Lake Superintendent, Dr. Anita Micich said, “There’s been a lot of talk about safe rooms on school campuses now since what happened in Oklahoma. We’ve made that adjustment and improvement on that campus as well, so all our kids and staff can get to that room within a 5-8 minute period of time and they’ll be safe from an EF 5 tornado.”
All teachers have been moved into the main building, they will be able to set up their classrooms in early August.
