In the past 10 months we have heard so much about the damaged LCHS, we saw a few second clip of some ceiling tiles falling to the floor, weve seen a few cracks in the masonary. But have we seen enough damage to destroy the Bldg????, certainly not myself!! Is the school really damaged beyond repair or is this just a ploy to get on the "lets build a new High School" wagon. I have news for Louisa County officials and residents, a new school doesnt create better students or better graduates and its not necessarily a better place to work!!

A new school was needed even before the earthquake. The original building still had copper pipes in the water system, the insulation was wearing down- it needed to happen. The earthquake brought the opportunity for the town to actually afford it. I'd have to disagree with you on the point that a new school doesn't make better graduates. I think that a new school will lead to a better education, because the new classrooms will help facilitate the classroom and teachers in a better environment. Have you seen the science labs?'They needed an upgrade' would be an understatement. I'm pretty sure if you walked around with a school teacher or a knowledgable parent you'd hear 'it needs an upgrade' a lot in that school. Before this earthquake we didn't have that money. now we do. Are we really going to just give that money back and say "Sorry, some of our concerned citizens think that we are doing this just to be trendy, so you can take the money back. We'll just patch the roof, replace the gym, and hope that we didn't miss a hairline fracture in the foundation.

Well I can only say if you need a new school, then build a new school. Louisa County has one of the best tax bases of any rural county in VA, if you cant afford it you really need to look @ who's doing the planning, and where is the money going? To ride the coat tails of the federal govt via a unnecessary/unfounded FEMA grant is a fraud to every American taxpayer. And back to my origingal comment if the school is so damaged why havent we seen any pics of the actual problems?????

Stupid people. If this school was usable, it would not have been necessary to make all the changes and expenses to bring in pods. You clueless people would you want your children to go to school in an unsafe building. I don't think so. I don't know why you are hating on Louisa, but I am very proud of what our community has done in the face of a earthquake. This earthquake shook us to the core but it didn't take away our pride, determination, and unity as a community. I you are jealous don't be, our kids have suffered being disrupted and making adjustments to be in class. Hats off to a community that cares and we will survive. Thank you Louisa you show people what it means to come together and help each other. Shame on you people who don't have a clue.
