Construction of the new school in Mapleton is officially underway.
School Officials held a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday for the new school, being built off Highway 7, just south of Mapleton.
Site preparations will take place this fall and construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2021.
The schedule calls for all of the district’s students and staff to move to the $63 million school in the fall of 2022.
Voters approved a $63 million bond to pay for the new school back in February.
