Old Poca Middle School to be demolished


The old Poca Middle School is scheduled to come down today.

Crews will start tearing down the old Poca Middle School around 11 a.m.

The site will take days to demolish.

It will eventually be turned into a parking lot and drop-off for Poca Elementary students.

The building dates back to 1926.

The school closed after voters approved a $56 million school bond to build a new Poca Middle School. The new school opened in 2012.

In total, the 2009 bond allowed for nine school construction projects throughout the county.
