Chris Augusta-Scott, superintendent of Norfolk's elementary school system, said she is excited that the school has been invited by the state to conduct a feasibility study on a new school building that would be built with state assistance.
Classrooms in the Freeman-Centennial Elementary School, which was built in the 1950s, do not meet current needs, she said.
Augusta-Scott said she doesn't yet know whether the district will rebuild the school, which serves students from grades three to six, or consider constructing a K-to-six school at the site. The H. Olive Day School currently houses students in grades K through two, but officials have talked of using that site for fire and police facilities.
