Marlow unveils new elementary school

MARLOW, Okla._Marlow Public Schools held a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly constructed Ousley Early Childhood Center Thursday night.

The center is named for former Marlow Superintendent Scott Ousley and his wife, Glenda. She helped cut the ribbon. Scott Ousley died in 1986 after serving as superintendent for 18 years. The center was built with funds from a $14-million bond, the largest in the district's history. It moves the students out of portable classrooms and a 50-year-old building into one with 32 classrooms and a computer lab.

"We're in buildings now that are modern and up-to-date, state-of-the-art. We have safe rooms in our facility that are going to protect our kids. We started this in 2011, getting our bond issue passed, and now, in 2014, we start school next Thursday, and I think our kids will be extremely excited when they get here," said Marlow Superintendent George Coffman.

Coffman said there are still some finishing touches that will be worked on during the first several days of school, so he's asking for patience from parents in the drop off and pick up zones.
