A worker with Choate Construction cuts some molding Thursday inside the new Mattie Lively Elementary School. Construction at the school on Debbie Drive in Statesboro is expected to last through the end of January, with students moving into the new school sometime after that.
Framework is all but complete and final details are coming into place at the new Mattie Lively Elementary School building on Debbie Drive. With a Feb. 7 project-completion-date two months away, construction crews are beginning to lay tile, install lights, insert ductwork, and paint in preparation of the school’s opening next year. According to Dr. Lewis Holloway, superintendent of Bulloch County schools, officials are optimistic the new, two-tiered building will be open to students and teachers as early as mid-February.
