    Work at Hixson includes a beautiful, new main entrance that faces Elm Avenue as well as office space and a new library (which will be in the area where the old library had been). The bond issue also provides for a two-story academic wing, which is under construction at the back of the building. Other projects at Hixson include enlarging the cafeteria, building an additional gymnasium (which will double as a safe room for the school), improved parking and safety and accessibility enhancements such as a secure vestibule with controlled entry devices, a secured service window and video monitoring.
