The new Owego Elementary School is taking shape on the site of the school that was damaged by massive flooding two-and-a-half years ago.

Owego Apalachin school superintendent William Russell says the district’s goal is to have the school ready for classes in September of next year.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Russell said “we are pretty unrelenting about that target date.”

Hundreds of children and their teachers have been using an old Union-Endicott School District building in West Corners as a temporary instructional site since the flood.

Russell noted the daily bus ride for many of the young children is lengthy because of the need to utilize the school in Broome County.

The steel frame for the new school started rising a few weeks ago. Thousands of pieces of steel are being put into place for the 120,000-square-foot building.
