The Trigg County Primary and Intermediate Schools will be ready for students at the start of school on Wednesday, Aug. 6.

That is what officials with the engineering and architecture firms responsible for the Trigg County Primary/Intermediate School renovation project told Trigg County Board of Education members at their meeting Thursday night. However, Keith Sharp with Hopkinsville-based JKS Architects said not every aspect will be completed by that date.

“I think everyone understands that we’re not going to be 100-percent finished,” said Sharp. “I think that’s a pretty common understanding.”

Sharp said that the five upstairs classrooms, the student transportation area for buses and vehicles and the administration area are the three areas that are required for school to start on time. He added that those three areas and likely others will be completed by that date.

When asked what would happen if those three items weren’t completed by Aug. 6, Hamby said simply that classes wouldn’t start on that date. Guess said, “That’s not an option.”
