Augusta County Public Schools break ground on new middle schools
leaders in Augusta County met at Riverheads High School to break ground on the site’s new middle school wing.
HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - Back in January 2020, ground was broken on the new Rocktown High School in Harrisonburg. The construction was put on hold for 15 months during the pandemic before resuming last June. Over a year later major progress has been made and the school is on track to open in the fall of 2024.
Construction of the city’s second high school is proceeding on schedule, said Craig Mackail, chief operating officer for Harrisonburg City Public Schools. However, as winter approaches, construction is at the mercy of Mother Nature. But with that to be expected, construction company Nielsen Builders has built days for winter weather into the timeline for the school.
