Livingston begins the process for new K-8 Southside campus


LIVINGSTON PARISH, La. (BRPROUD)- Livingston Parish Public Schools celebrated the first phase of creating the new K-8 Southside campus. The parish hosted a ceremonial groundbreaking on September 10.

The new school will cost a total of $45 million dollars.

Southside campus is taking place of two schools that were destroyed from the 2016 floods.

The new two-story campus will incorporate Southside Elementary (K-5) and Southside Junior High (6-8).

“This day marks the end of a long, arduous journey. It’s hard to imagine how much we have overcome since we were faced with only debris and destruction at this site. But more importantly, this marks the first day a new journey for this community – one of restoration and progress and brighter, better days ahead,” Superintendent, Joe Murphy said.
