Building For The Future
In the fall of 2015 the community passed a bond referendum to improve indoor air quality, remodel a portion of the existing school and add additional spaces for student and public use. The District has hired consultants to move the initial stages of the project forward. Periodic updates will be highlighted here. Please click the Building for the Future tab from the menu at the left for additional information.

Feb 9, 2016 - On Feb 8th the core design team met with the District’s consultants to discuss plans for the school remodel. They’ve scheduled one more meeting before the designs and schematics are presented to the Board.
While there are still many details to be considered, the team agreed that the project is heading in the right direction, and is meeting Project Design Goals:
- Educational Focus
- Community accessibility, not community designed
?- Facility Pride - functional, clean
- 21st Century Learning
- Start the facility lifecycle at “new”
The design team was pleased with the overall look and feel of the designs presented, and appreciated the careful consideration given to every square foot of our facility.
Additional modifications are being made to the floor plan based on input from elementary school staff. After the board approves the schematic design, we will post the layout online. Stay tuned!
