WATSON - Livingston Parish school officials are hoping for an October move-in date for the new Live Oak High School campus in Watson but acknowledge it could be November before the new campus opens.

Hurricane Isaac set back construction after the slow-moving storm dropped 9.4 inches of rain over the Denham Springs area, including the unincorporated community of Watson.

School Board member Kellee Hennessy Dickerson says the water brought a halt to pavement projects.

Superintendent Bill Spear says construction at the $27 million, 211,255-square-foot facility has met with a number of setbacks, including a major theft of copper and tools from the construction site in January and a string of wet weather prior to Isaac.
