Guymon Schools Busting at the Seams
09/29/2009

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

left

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.
