Calera residents and high school students are looking forward to a new high school to be completed in time for the 2018-2019 school year.

Ground is being prepared for concrete. It’s after that when walls and roof are built and it will begin to look like a school. One resident said, “It’s going to be nice. I’m glad we voted the bond issue through. This will be one of the best things for Calera.”

Residents are excited to see what it will be like with a new school that cost under $6 million.

Kevin Robinson, Principal at Calera High School, the Head Bulldog there said, “They haven’t poured the slab yet. They have 90% of the footings in. They are working on plumbing and getting that ready.”

He said they hope to pour the south side slab next week but he’s worried weather could delay that.

Robinson said, “They are going to have to pour sections, because it’s so big.”
