The first signs of winter were seen in central Illinois Thursday with snow in the area.
As winter looms, the addition at Heyworth Junior/Senior high school continues with the goal of enclosing what will be a new gymnasium. Superintendent Lisa Taylor indicates so far though, there's been a lot of work done inside the building as part of the addition.
Part of the update of the facility is going to be centered around security. Taylor says they are going to a digital entry system and a digital surveillance system.
Classrooms in the school building will be updated with new furniture. Taylor says right now they are sampling furniture to narrow down to what they will ultimately decide on. She says they are learning about what works and getting feedback from teachers and students.
