Mount Vernon school made of ‘high-tech’ wood opens

A Mount Vernon elementary school built with a high-tech wood product opened Monday.

Fifth grader Valeria Alvarez is sad she’ll be missing out. She’s graduating from Jefferson Elementary and won’t be able to hit the books in one of the new classrooms on campus.

“It doesn’t feel like a forest, but it feels very different from a normal classroom. You just feel more comfortable. It’s like a home or something,” Alvarez said.
