SCOTT CITY, Mo. (AP) — A new safe room building for Scott City schools will double as a performing arts center in the southeast Missouri community.
The Scott City School District broke ground Monday on a shelter designed to withstand tornado winds of up to 250 miles per hour. The Southeast Missourian (bit.ly/1vzRXIU ) reports that the Federal Emergency Management Agency paid for three-quarters of the $2.1 million project.
The performing arts wing will provide space for school plays, choir and band concerts and art exhibits.
