JCPS breaks ground on Thanksgiving area elementary school

Johnston County Public Schools broke ground on the district’s newest elementary school on Thursday, July 30.

The school, located off of Lynch Rd., will serve families in the Thanksgiving area once construction is complete, which is expected in May 2021. The school is scheduled to open in the fall of 2021.

The new construction should alleviate overcrowding at elementary schools in the north eastern portion of Johnston County. It will be the district’s 24th elementary school.

The school is one of the 2018 bond referendum projects. More information about all of the 2018 bond projects can be found on the district’s website.
