BILLINGS- Students at the new Lockwood High School will start at a special freshman academy, although the school isn’t set to be finished until fall of 2020.

Superintendent Tobin Novasio told Q2 News Tuesday a special auxiliary building will be ready to go in August, placing roughly 125 freshmen in Lockwood to start off the school year.

The building will house a gym, classrooms and common areas for students before the actual high school is built.

Right now, registration questionnaires are being sent to students and parents to see what classes the district should offer.

Novasio believes they will even have enough freshmen to start major sports programs, like football and basketball.

As far as the budget He added that the district is working with the architect currently to finalize the plans for the budget.

The new high school is set to be completed with updated security, a large gym, auditorium and career, and tech education spaces.
