The ribbon's cut and the new Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn Elementary School is officially ready for students.

A brief ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Monday in front of the new facility, which has been under construction for over a year. The event recognized those who helped make the dream of a 21st century educational facility a reality. They included the committee that helped get the $18.9 million bond issue passed in the spring of 2018 and the district's administration and staff.

"We're excited to get the kids in the building and get things started," said Superintendent Patrick Carlin.
