SELLERSBURG — Plans for rebuilding the Henryville schools, beginning work on a contract for a company to take on the job and preliminary ideas on where students will finish the school year were given at West Clark Community Schools’ board of trustees meeting Thursday night.

Monty Schneider, superintendent, said his answers to the questions of the audience in the packed gymnasium at Silver Creek High School weren’t firm, but he assured them that everything’s beginning to fall back into place.

“The board and I wish we had a lot of answers for you tonight, a lot of concrete answers for you tonight,” Schneider said. “Unfortunately, that’s not the case. We’ll be able to tell you a few things, but things are changing daily.”

One thing that’s for sure is students will have another week off from school, with classes cancelled from Monday through March 16.

The board’s unanimous passing of a resolution to declare an emergency and direct the restoration of rebuilding the school will help speed up the process.

During the meeting, Schneider said preliminary locations for students to finish the school year have been selected, but no formal agreements have been entered yet.

Middle and high school students may go to the Mid-America Science Park on South Lake Road in Scottsburg, about 10.5 miles from Henryville.
