It’s good news for the Dibrell community and the students at Dibrell School as the state fire marshal approved a certificate of occupancy for the existing building Wednesday, which will allow school to open on time Monday.The expansion of the facility is still in process, but that section of the building won’t be complete and ready for occupancy until early to mid-October, according to officials.Director of Schools Dr. Jerry Hale said he is pleased the existing building passed its safety inspection Wednesday and appreciates state fire marshal Bob Dixson’s patience and assistance.When contacted at the central office yesterday Hale had just returned from the school, which was having registration.“I just got back from Dibrell so I’m feeling good right now,” Hale said. “It’s good news, it looks to be in good shape, they’ve made tremendous strides in the last two weeks.”While the decision came down to the wire, Hale said everyone is happy, and relieved, at the ultimate result.“We’ve got a certificate of occupancy from the fire marshal,” Hale said. “They passed the electrical inspection actually on Monday, so I think we’re set to go out there.
