As students across middle Tennessee head back to the classroom, kids at three mid-state schools will return to unfinished buildings.
Many of the doors and windows have been boarded up, replaced with plywood at three schools in Sumner County: Madison Creek elementary, H.B. Williams Elementary and White House Middle School.
The school district said they are replacing the doors and windows at the three schools, but the contractor had a delay in getting the new replacements shipped in.
The district said this the boards will likely be up for a few weeks into the school year.
Sumner County School officials have spoken with the fire marshal, who said this is a safe option and stressed it is just a temporary solution.
The district has issued a notice for parents students and staff explaining the delays.
