AUSTIN — Following the mass shooting on May 24 that left 19 children and two teachers de@d, parents in Uvalde can now see what the new elementary school that will replace Robb Elementary will look like.
The new campus is expected to accommodate 800 students. That is about twice as big as Robb Elementary.
The new campus will feature a lot of new security measures, including fencing around the playfields, keyless entry points, and privacy gates that are 9 feet tall, officials said.
Visitors will also have a safe waiting area at the front of the campus, and a new road will make it easier for emergency personnel to reach the school from the north.
The 21 Robb Elementary shooting victims will also be remembered in the school’s new architecture, according to plans.
At a recent rally at the Texas Capitol, passionate chants for school safety lulled into pained silence as Caitlyne Gonzales took the microphone that day.
