When Memorial Day weekend ends, construction on Desert Willow Elementary in Carlsbad begins.
This new building replaces Pate and Pucjett Elementary schools.
It may start running in time for not this coming school year, but the following one.
Desert Willow soon sits adjacent to Puckett.
Meanwhile, the groundbreaking ceremony for another new school takes place in a few weeks.
The Current-Argus reports this moment happens for Ocotillo Elementary as soon as officials clear enough ground for it.
A bond that voters approved last year pays for both buildings.
