Staff Reports Posted 3 September 2013 at 12:00 am

School starts today for two Orleans County school districts – Kendall and Lyndonville.

On Wednesday, Albion, Holley and Medina will welcome back returning students and a new crop of kindergarteners.

Holley students will return to a campus with major renovations over the summer, including a revamped foyer, and upgraded library, dining hall, resource room and new offices.

Contractors have worked for two years on a $27 million capitol improvement project, the largest in Holley Central School’s history. Holley will celebrate the completion of the project with a ribbon-cutting in front of the high school at 5:30 p.m. today. The campus will be open for tours until 8 p.m.

The project overhauled high school side of the middle-high school, replacing roofs on that building plus the elementary school, while also tearing down the current bus garage and building a new transportation facility.

The district also built a new football field and all-weather track, and tackled a series of other improvements.
