New Altha School Opens After Winter Break

CALHOUN COUNTY, Fla. - Altha public school administrators and teachers welcomed kindergarten through 12th graders to the brand new campus located behind the old school Monday morning.
 
The school district broke ground on the new one in February 2015, after securing $23.8 million in state funding.
 
The original Altha school was built in 1927 and grew over the decades to a crowded campus of buildings and portables.
 
The state-of-the art campus features smart boards in the classrooms and library, color-coded hallways, and a larger lunch room with two lines instead of one.
 
"The students are excited, I've heard comments that I can't believe this is real and so all and all it has been a great start to the second half of our school year," said Superintendent of Schools Ralph Yoder.
 
The school will have a ribbon cutting ceremony on January 20th, at 1:30 p.m.
