Thenew school will be built off Westmooreland Avenue near the current high schoolin Napoleon, and where the new junior high addition will be built.

It’sall part of a restructuring plan in the district, which Superintendent Dr.Stephen Fogo says will not only save on operation costs, but also provide newopportunities for students.

“Itgives us a district campus feel, so they’re right across the street from eachother,” Dr. Fogo said. “One of the things we’re hoping that our kids in thehigh school choose to do during a study hall is walk right across the streetand work with our little pumpkins at the elementary school.
