A groundbreaking for the Iola school district’s new elementary school, planned for April, likely will be delayed because of the social distancing rules caused by the coronavirus pandemic. 

The project itself, though, remains on track, USD 257 board president Dan Willis said.

Construction is considered “an essential function” and likely won’t be affected by the various restrictions related to the coronavirus outbreak.
