Harford board OKs 600-student school

March 27, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Because of rapidly growing enrollment, the Harford County school board voted Monday night to build a 600-student school at the site of Forest Hill Elementary for about $7.2 million, instead of one for 400 students. The vote was unanimous.

The board had approved construction of the school this month -- without deciding its size -- rather than renovating the existing building, which was built in 1939. The new school, which will keep the same name, is to open in 1999.

To ease crowding at Forest Hill Elementary, a portion of its students will be transferred to another school, Forest Lake Elementary, when it opens next year.
