LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Glen Acres Elementary is prepped and polished and ready for its students and staff.
Lafayette schools start in just under three weeks, and the new 85,000-square-foot facility had an open house Wednesday evening.
Principal Megan Hatke hosted kindergarten through 4th grade families.
She, along with staff, showed off the new amenities in the building.
One 4th grade parent said he's thankful his son is in the new glen acres.
"We didn't have air conditioning and it didn't look like this and I have to try the cafeteria food before I make any judgment," said Joshua Rowley.
School starts August 6th for students and August 5th for teachers.
