MELROSE, Fla. (WCJB) - The community in Melrose has saved their elementary school from being closed.

At a Putnam County School Board workshop on Wednesday a revised plan was presented to keep open Melrose Elementary as the district begins a 10 year plan to revamp its schools.

Initially the school was set to close as a new facility was built.

The community raised more than $25,000 to keep the school open.

Now the district will leave the school open until construction begins. Then students will be moved to portables until work is complete.
