Work Underway at Amherst County Schools

Amherst Co., VA - Repairs are underway at schools in Amherst County ahead of the coming school year.

Workers were repairing the roof on Amherst County High School Monday.

Once the work is finished, the contractor will make repairs to the roof at Monelison Middle School.

Both projects were on the school system's high priority priorities list.

Amherst County school officials say in the next six years, all county schools will go through some kind of renovation, making the buildings more efficient and saving energy costs.
