DUNDALK, Md. — While hundreds of students were out of school on Wednesday due to the heat, others were celebrating their new school.
An official ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the new Dundalk Elementary School. It cost nearly $47 million to replace and enlarge the former school, which was built in 1926.
"This building does not make the school, it's the people," said Michael Parker, Dundalk Elementary principal. "The new building won't define who we are, but it will certainly inhance what we already do."
The new state-of-the-art school opened to students on September 3.
