Nearby blasting has prompted education officials in Martin County to close the county's only high school building. The blasts from a construction site have caused cracks in the walls and floors of Sheldon Clark High School to widen.

The school board voted Thursday night to move classes and keep the county's only high school shuttered this academic year. High school students will have classes at Inez Middle School. The middle school students from Inez will be consolidated with those at Warfield Middle School.

The board moved back the start of the school year to August 21 to make the classroom adjustments.
