VERNON, Texas (KAUZ) - Vernon ISD held a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday for a new elementary school.

The school is being built as part of the $40 million bond that passed in November. The bond aimed to address aging facilities by renovating the high school and opening this new elementary school, which will serve 650 students in grades 2-5.

When the school is fully constructed, it will have a cafeteria with a stage for student performances, music and art rooms, and a gymnasium that can double as a storm shelter for all students and staff.
