About the Project
The two-story addition will include four new classrooms to relieve overcrowding and help students succeed. The design ties into and blends in with the existing masonry school building.
The new addition will be located at the north end of the existing school and will include some new landscaping, bio-filtration, and a new secure bicycle storage area. The existing playground will be relocated to allow for construction of the addition.
Changes to the administration area and main entrance will create a secure entry vestibule that directs visitors into the office area to increase school safety. The fire alarm system will also be replaced.
Creating this additional educational space will allow the return of preschool to the school. The school community and childcare will remain on site during the school year.
