LCS holds groundbreaking for new Elkmont Elementary School


ATHENS, Alabama, September 21, 2022 --- It’s been talked about for quite some time around the Elkmont community. However, it wasn’t until Wednesday that the talk of a new elementary school became a reality as shovel met dirt during a groundbreaking for the new campus.

“This is an exciting day for Limestone County Schools and an exciting day for all the teachers, faculty, and staff at both Elkmont and Piney Chapel Elementary Schools,” Superintendent Dr. Randy Shearouse told those in attendance. “It’s always amazing to see a project come to fruition, and I can’t wait until we can walk into the finished product.”
Earlier this year, the Limestone County Board of Education entered into an agreement with the Alabama Elk River Development Agency for 26 acres located on Highway 127 for the new school.
Once finished, the school will house students from Elkmont Elementary School and Piney Chapel Elementary School and will be able to accommodate 750 students.
Construction is set to be completed by the fall of 2024.
