New Zachary school to open Jan. 22
ZACHARY - First- and second-grade students in the Zachary Community School District are scheduled to move Jan. 22 into a new, $18 million school, Rollins Place Elementary.
The 105,000-square-foot building shares a 69-acre tract with the Zachary Early Learning Center, a school for pre-kindergarten students.
Superintendent Scott Devillier says workers are continuing an effort to get the building ready to welcome students on the day after the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
Zachary's first-grade students now attend classes at Northwestern Elementary School, which will become an all-kindergarten facility after the move.
Second-graders are now at Zachary Elementary, sharing space with the third grade.
Devillier says the district now has about 400 students in the two grades.
