Construction continues on the new addition at Ellsworth Elementary School. The project is behind schedule but should be finished in May. Concrete has been poured for the floor in the new cafeteria and several cinder block walls are up.

The construction project at Ellsworth Elementary School is about a month behind schedule. But Superintendent Dale Brungardt told members of the Ellsworth-Kanopolis-Geneseo School board at their Dec. 10 meeting the delay shouldn’t be a problem. The project is expected to be finished in May instead of April.

Brungardt said the floor for the school’s new cafeteria has been poured and several walls are up.

In other business, the board shared information about possible capital outlay projects, including the projected purchase of vehicles. The district is considering the purchase of a Ford Transit van, as it holds two more people than a Suburban and could transport most of the tennis team and its coaches.
