More progress is being made on the future of Camdenton schools at the lake. According to a release from Dr. Tim Hadfield, Superintendent of Schools in Camdenton R3, excavation is underway at both Hurricane Deck and Osage Beach Elementary. At the Hurricane Deck location, they have built a temporary hallway at the end of the building to access the kindergarten rooms during the construction process at Osage Beach. The Kahrs family, who live near the new school, donated around 5 acres of land which has officially been accepted by the State Board of Education. This new section of land was not part of the original plan and will become a special outdoor classroom and trail area. Hadfield says they are “very grateful” to the family for their donation. Next item on their agenda will be the dedications of the buildings when they open in 2015.
