KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. -- Construction on new classrooms at Henley Middle school should be ready for students by the time school starts in Fall 2019. 

Construction workers finished installing trusses for the roof of the new 6,400-square-foot classroom building on Thursday. The project is similar to Peterson Elementary School's six-classroom, fifth-sixth grade building. 

The concrete foundation was poured in Janauary and workers framed the building. When completed, the new building will provide four additional classrooms to the school and replace aging modulars. The modulars at Henley Middle as well as Peterson Elementary will be demolished this summer. 

Another four-classroom building will be constructed at Stearns Elementary School next year. The new construction will help occupancy in Fall 2020. 

These projects are being funded by a $4.1 million issuance the school board approved in December 2016.
