EWHS opening school at Mathiston in former Wood College.

From Staff Reports
East Webster High students will start the school year at the temporary
campus in Mathiston because the new school building is not complete.
³Weather delays and construction delays have not allowed us to move in,²
Superintendent of Education Jack Treloar said July 31.
He said the Golden Triangle Planning and Development District, which owns
the former Wood College campus, is allowing East Webster High School to
continue using it. Webster County students return to school Aug. 7.
Treloar said parents are being notified that EWHS students will begin the
school year in Mathiston through the all-call system, which distributes a
recorded message from the school to them.
When ground was broken in Cumberland for East Webster¹s new academic
facility in May 2012, officials said they expected it to be completed by
this August. Panola Construction of Batesville is the contractor.
³We do not plan to move in until it is complete,² Treloar said.
East Webster High has been housed at Wood since one week after the April
2011 tornado that destroyed the school¹s Cumberland campus.
