More Time Needed at School Campus

It could take longer than previously estimated for some students and teachers at Kemper County High School to move into new temporary classrooms.

The modular structures are still being put in place on the campus. There will be 15 units to house 24 classrooms, two offices and the cafeteria.

The high school was badly damaged by a fire Dec. 11. Investigators say it was intentionally set.

Students and faculty at the school are expected to occupy the spaces for the rest of this school year.

School officials say the new temporary classrooms should be ready for use within the next two weeks.
