The EVSC will host a groundbreaking ceremony for McCutchanville Elementary School – the new school being built on the northside – on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 10 a.m. The event will include guest speakers as well as an opportunity for families to help the corporation officially break ground on the new building. The event is open to the public and will include refreshments as well as a commemorative shovel for students. A rain date is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 11.
McCutchanville Elementary School, which will be located at 10701 Petersburg Road, is scheduled to open for the 2018-2019 school year and will serve students in prekindergarten through sixth grade. It is located on a 25-acre site purchased in 1995 specifically as a future school site.
The new school boundaries are drawn from portions of Scott and Oak Hill elementary schools. Boundaries include: Highway 41 on the west; Boonville New Harmony Road to Petersburg Road to Green River Road to Ruston on the north; the Warrick County line on the east; and Highway 57 and a line parallel to Hillsdale Road on the south.
Construction on the new school is set to begin immediately.
