After a construction delay tied to questions about the modular building’s proximity to the Gainesville Memorial Airport across Bull Dog Drive, the Gainesville School District’s new Preschool Center now is ready for the opening of the school year on Aug. 13. Site preparation began in May, but work stopped after questions were raised about the safety of the building’s location a short distance east of the junior high wing of the high school building near the end of the airport runway.
