At the groundbreaking, Superintendent Bary Habrock thanked the community for approving a $150 million bond back in March. Habrock says the new building should ease overcrowding and offer more opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities. "We know when students are engaged in school life they do better. And today we thank our community for supporting the need for a third high school. We celebrate the beginning of our construction
The school will be modeled after Elkhorn South and is scheduled to open for the 2020 school year.
