Port Clinton Middle School opening delayed

Anything worth having is worth the wait … that includes a state-of-the-art middle school. Port Clinton City School District officials recently learned that the building will not be completed for the first day of school on Sept. 5. Students and staff will start the new school year in the existing middle school on Fourth Street. The plan is to moved students and staff into the new building in October.
“We are very pleased with the design of the building and cannot move into a building that is not ready for students and staff,” said Pat Adkins, Superintendent of Schools. “The community has waited a long time for new school facilities and this is too important to rush. Twenty years from now we will be measured by the quality of the building not a starting date.”
The school district is fortunate to have the existing middle school on Fourth Street so that students and staff have a familiar location for classes to take place. A letter with the changes to orientations and open houses has been sent home to parents of Port Clinton Middle School students.
