Sulphur Springs Independent School District has many maintenance jobs underway in preparation for the next school year. One of the most exciting for high school students is the changes being made the student parking lot. The parking lot is being repaved and repainted, due to the stripes 50-100 new spots will be added. The re-pavement will extend to the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center, Ag Extension Building, and the Southwest Dairy Museum. Also at the high school, a drainage issue is being addressed behind the new tennis courts. The Tech Center is receiving lots of love and attention to make the building ready for full time high school classes next year. Office areas of the Tech Center have been repainted and are being re-carpeted. A landscape project between the Tech Center and Civic Center Auditorium is taking place this week.
The unsightly dirt patch where Houston school was previously located on College St. is expected to receive a face lift soon with sod. Every summer, the floors of each school are stripped and waxed. Each school also receives paint in places inside the school as well as on the exterior. A few fencing projects will also take place at various campuses.
