BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two East Baton Rouge Parish schools will grow bigger by the time children return from winter break.

Southeast Middle and Villa del Rey Elementary schools are getting more classrooms, eight and six respectively, and both projects are almost complete.

Those additions are set to open when students return for the spring semester on Jan. 8. Each cost about $1.7 million.

The Advocate reports construction is just beginning on a $1.6 million six-classroom expansion at Ryan Elementary. Completion is scheduled for June, in time for the start of the 2012-13 school year in August.

The most construction activity will continue to occur at the $58.2 million renovation and expansion of Baton Rouge Magnet High School.
