    Groundbreaking Ceremony for Sipsey Valley Middle School

    Students at Sipsey Valley Middle Groundbreaking

    Students, faculty, staff and community members celebrated construction of the new Sipsey Valley Middle School at a Groundbreaking Ceremony Thursday, October 18. The new Sipsey Valley Middle School is set for an August 2019 opening date. The school will serve students in grades 5 – 8. Currently, SVMS shares a building with Sipsey Valley High School. Construction of the new school will create additional space for SVHS to use, and eliminate use of portable classrooms at the school. The new SVMS will also create additional space at three feeder elementary schools, by moving fifth graders to the new school.

    The Tuscaloosa County School System is excited to announce the new Holt High School will open for its first day of classes on Tuesday, November 13, 2018. Although the current timeline called for the school to open in January 2019, construction has moved at a pace that will allow for an earlier opening date.

    To prepare for the November 13 opening, the Tuscaloosa County Board of Education has approved Friday, November 9, 2018 as a non-attendance day for Holt High School students. Classes will not be held and students should not report to campus on this day.  Holt High School faculty and staff will report to work on November 9, and use this time to prepare for the opening of the new school. The non-attendance day applies to students at Holt High only.

    Following the Monday, November 12 Veterans Day holiday, Holt High School students will report to the new school Tuesday, November 13. The new school is located at 301 44th Ct NE in Holt. Holt High students and families will receive more information about the transition to the new school prior to opening day.

    The existing Holt High School was built in 1944. The new Holt High School is built for a capacity of more than 500 students. It includes a career tech center, band/choral/fine arts classrooms, media center, administrative and counseling suites, and more.
