BSISD hopes to keep construction inconveniences to a minimum

August 19, 2011

New school years often mean changes, and the one that starts here Monday is no different.

And while most of the changes are somewhat subtle and not always noticeable to the general public, the biggest change at Big Spring Independent School District will be obvious to everyone.

Construction on four new elementary campuses, part of a $60 million renovation of the school district's infrastructure, will be in full swing during the coming school year and officials are promising to do everything they can to keep disruptions and inconveniences to a minimum.

School days prompt change in aquatic center hours

August 19, 2011

Summertime is almost over, but that doesn't mean fun at the pool has to stop entirely.

The Big Spring Family Aquatic Center will be changing hours of operation, but won't be closing just yet. After this weekend, the aquatic center will be closed during the week and open only on weekends. New hours will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through the end of September, according to Terri Telchick, assistant city manager secretary.

“We are looking forward to keeping this successful summer going,” Telchick said. “We want to have summer last as long as possible.”
