MARYSVILLE, Wash. (AP) - The Marysville School District has approved an $8.1 million plan to replace a high school cafeteria where four students were fatally shot by a classmate who brought a gun to school in 2014.

KOMO-TV reports (https://goo.gl/k9jxZw ) that the school board voted Monday to spend the funds on a 16,000-square-foot cafeteria and gathering area at Marysville-Pilchuck High School. Construction work on the project is set for April.

Officials say the school cafeteria has been closed since a 15-year-old boy shot and killed four students before turning the gun on himself on Oct. 24 2014.

Students have since had to find other places on campus to eat lunch, such as the school gymnasium and the activities center.

The new cafeteria is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
