Guymon Schools Busting at the Seams

KSCB News - September 29, 2009 12:00 am

GUYMON, Okla. (AP) – School officials in Guymon were expecting

more students this year – just not an increase that’s three times

larger than usual.

The district had 2,736 students last week – about 230 more than

last year and Superintendent Doug Melton says there are no rooms


Melton says one elementary school has added a portable building

for classrooms to handle the additional students and another

elementary that was recently built may need to do the same.

The district has seen a steady increase in students since 1995

when Seaboard Foods opened a hog-processing plant. Now a Walmart

Supercenter and two hotels have recently opened creating more jobs

– and people moving into the area looking for jobs.

Melton says a final enrollment count will be made Thursday.
