Spring Hill

One last look at Shady Hills before facelift

Shady Hills Elementary School principal Nicole Reynolds is inviting current and past students, parents and staff to stop by the school from 6 to 7 p.m. this evening for one last look at the school as it appears today. The school will close for the next two school years for total renovations and upgrades. During the renovations, Shady Hills Elementary students will be housed at Crews Lake Middle School, which temporarily will be a K-8 school. During today's open house, visitors can roam the hallways and share memories while viewing the colorful murals. Yearbooks from each of the school's 39 years also will be on display. The last day of school for students was Tuesday; teachers' last day is Thursday. The school is at 18000 Shady Hills Road, Spring Hill.
