MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. - More changes are ahead for students in the McCracken County School District.

Superintendent Nancy Waldrop tells the Paducah Sun that students will be shuffling buildings into next summer.

The former Reidland High School building is currently empty, but that will soon change. The newspaper says the district plans to begin redecorating that building, along with the now empty Heath Middle School.

The district plans to move students in next summer to utilize a similar structure to that of Lone Oak schools.

Currently, Lone Oak Intermediate School, which houses fourth and fifth grade students, is in the former Lone Oak Middle School. Sixth, seventh and eighth graders in Lone Oak relocated to the old high school.

The Reidland High School and Heath Middle School buildings were vacated when the new McCracken County High School opened last month. Reidland's elementary and middle school students remained in their respective buildings for the 2013-14 school year, while Heath Middle School students moved into the former high school building.
