The new Boyle County Middle School building will be ready for students to begin hybrid learning on Sept. 30, when students who have chosen to do in-person classes will return to school. The building celebrated a small ribbon cutting on Sept. 17. Principal Brian Wheeler, who has been principal since July 1 and was previously assistant principal, said the school is lucky to be spacious so students can socially distance due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and he said the percentage of students who are planning to come back to school for in-person classes currently continues to fluctuate, but right now the school is expecting the majority of the students to return. Wheeler gave the Advocate-Messenger a tour of the school on Sept. 24. View the photo gallery above to view some of the school’s key features. (Photos by Olivia Mohr)
