District Breaks Ground on Newest Elementary

Hutto ISD Breaks Ground on Benjamin "Doc" Kerley Elementary

Work has officially begun on Hutto's seventh elementary school!
Thank you to all who came out for the groundbreaking ceremony of Benjamin "Doc" Kerley Elementary. It was a cold afternoon, but the great turnout of our community partners is an indication of the warm heart for students and the Hippo Nation!
We are especially thankful that Mr. Harold Kerley, Sr., and Mr. Harold Kerley, Jr., grandson and great-grandson of Doc Kerley, could join us.
Doc Kerley Elementary is scheduled to open for the 2019-2020 school year.
