Hartselle High School students assisted their teachers moving into the new high school campus on Bethel Road last week before spring break. A large percentage of the students, many of which drove to the new campus, were moving boxes furniture, books and more to help the teachers get ready for class in the new building. A final inspection by state inspector John Vandiver was conducted on Tuesday to see if the school would be ready to begin classes on April 1. Due to Tuesday deadlines, the results of that inspection were not immediately available. If the school passed inspection, then students and teachers also held their final classes at the Sparkman Street campus, which has served the Hartselle community for more than 100 years. City Councilman Tom Chappell said he hoped the city council would get behind and support the new high school building.

Hartselle High School students assisted their teachers moving into the new high school campus on Bethel Road last week before spring break.

A large percentage of the students, many of which drove to the new campus, were moving boxes furniture, books and more to help the teachers get ready for class in the new building.

A final inspection by state inspector John Vandiver was conducted on Tuesday to see if the school would be ready to begin classes on April 1.

Due to Tuesday deadlines, the results of that inspection were not immediately available.

If the school passed inspection, then students and teachers also held their final classes at the Sparkman Street campus, which has served the Hartselle community for more than 100 years.

City Councilman Tom Chappell said he hoped the city council would get behind and support the new high school building.

“We may not agree with the way it was handled, but we have a top-notch facility for our children,” Chappell said.
