Hugo school officials gear up for next weeks school bond election

HUGO, OK -- With less than a week away, Hugo Public Schools are gearing up for their $1.4 million bond election.

If passed the bond would get students out of the almost 100-year-old high school.

The city has accumulated $4-million through sales tax and the bond would supply the difference to build a $5.4-million school.

Hugo residents Roy and Betty Lyles put a sign on a trailer, supporting the upcoming bond.

"I just feel like we have the best opportunity in the world now to get the new high school and we need it very much." said Roy Lyles. "I'm afraid that if they don't do it that they are going to condemn that thing over there and then we will be in trouble."

Hugo Public Schools superintendent, Karen Lyles,says passing the bond would allow them to provide new learning experiences.

"We are really lacking with technology in that high school because it is so old and getting materials and the wiring we need." said Superintendent Lyles. "We have no science labs and we are going to get two science labs out of this for sure and then just some other things that the students can be proud of."

Hugo has a town hall meeting tomorrow at 7 pm discussing and answering questions on the bond.

The election will be next Tuesday, September 10th.
