Oak Hill Middle School Buildings Closed for Safety Issues


Two buildings on an Oak Hill middle school’s campus have been closed because of safety issues.

Fayette County school officials closed Collins Middle School’s main building on Monday. A building housing the school’s gym and a school-based health clinic was closed in December.

An inspection found that a third building housing fifth- and sixth-graders is sound. That building will remain open.

The main building housed seventh- and eighth-graders. School officials said during a community meeting Monday night that the eighth-graders will be moved to Oak Hill High School and the seventh-graders will be moved to Fayetteville High School.

Collins Middle School was built in 1950.
