Officials to turn dirt on schools

A number of Knox County leaders, including the mayor, schools superintendent, commissioners and school board members, will formally break ground at the sites of the new Gibbs and Hardin Valley middle schools next week.

Both groundbreakings will take place Tuesday with the Gibbs event happening at 11 a.m. and the Hardin Valley event at 1 p.m.

Parking for the Gibbs Middle School groundbreaking will be very limited on-site, so members of the public planning to attend are asked to park at Gibbs Ruritan Park, 7827 Tazewell Pike, and take a shuttle to the event location. Shuttles will begin running at 10 a.m.

The Hardin Valley Middle School groundbreaking will take place in the north parking lot, behind Hardin Valley Academy, near the baseball field. Attendees are asked to park in the parking lot between the baseball field and the retention pond. 

If schools are close that day because of bad weather, the groundbreakings will be rescheduled.
