As preparations get underway in the Bryan County School District to open a new elementary school, it was announced that some students are to be redistricted. 

There has been an increase of 11% in the student population and construction of the Frances Meeks Elementary School has begun to accommodate this growth. The new school will accommodate 1,200 students from pre-Kindergarten up to 5th Grade and is due to open in August 2020.

The Board of Education is now redistricting for elementary students by creating new lines in South Bryan. As a result, the Board will be holding 2 community forums in the area to get the community’s opinions about how best to redistrict to meet their needs.  The meetings will be held at Richmond Hill Middle School on November 14th and December 12th, starting at 7 pm.

A web page has been created to help parents understand the process and to aid in relaying important information:

After moving to Richmond Hill, GA in the fall of 2018, Matt wanted to become immediately involved in the community. Without hesitation, he created the Richmond Hill Community Facebook group which reached 2,700 members in just 5 months. After building this community, he decided they needed an honest, reliable news source to keep them informed. Thus, Richmond Hill 411 was born!
