A new school in Uvalde, which will replace Robb Elementary School, where 19 pupils and two teachers were killed in a mass shooting in 2022, broke ground on Saturday.

Secure Surroundings

“A secure environment where they may keep learning and developing is something that the children of Uvalde deserve. The Uvalde CISD Moving Forward Foundation said, “We are grateful for the opportunity to spend time with this amazing community.

Following the catastrophe that shook the nation and the community, the nonprofit was established. The initial $10 million donated to the foundation came from H-E-B and the Butt family.

The Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District received $15 million in state funding in November 2022 to help with the construction of the new school. The new school, which was created by Fort Worth’s Huckabee Architects, is seen by many as a crucial component of the healing process.

This is true even though Robb Elementary is still standing and the district has not yet stated whether or when it would be dismantled. However, the foundation claims that the building is shuttered and will never be utilized as a school again.

Situated next to Dalton Elementary, close to Leona and Fourth Street, the new school was constructed on a 23-acre plot of land. This makes it possible for both campuses to enjoy the common areas, which include the playgrounds, library, and gym. Prekindergarten through first graders attend Dalton, while second through fourth graders attend the new elementary.

Chris Huckabee, CEO of Huckabee Architects, previously told CBS News Texas, “It is very open.” “There is a lot of security worked into those openings, but nonetheless it has the feel of a traditional school building that you would see today anyway.”

The new school features a memorial tree and other memorials in its design, and it is twice as big as Robb Elementary.
