LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

Thousands of Lee County students return to school on Friday, August 4, 2017, and some students will see new changes with their school buildings.

Renovations are taking place at schools, like Kinchafoonee Primary School, and Lee County High School.

Lee Co. School Superintendent Dr. Jason Miller said the primary school is getting a new roof. It was supposed to be completed by the first day of school, however due to the rain, the crew is still working on it.

Other changes are taking place at the high school.

Last month, Lee Co. High School held a ribbon-cutting for a new multipurpose room. The 43,000-square foot addition includes six new classrooms, two labs, a weight room, and a practice room for the cheerleaders.

The school is also receiving new flooring and few fresh coats of paint.

"The school was designed in the late 1980s and opened during the 1992-1993 school year. The color scheme is very different and it’s going to be nice," Dr. Miller said.

Dr. Miller said the high school renovation is set to take place throughout the school year.

The superintendent said that neither of the renovations should have a major impact on day to day operations.
