Facilities Building Project Update

 

We are currently working very hard on the design and ultimately the construction of two (2) new elementary schools to alleviate the overcrowded spaces and allow us to plan for the future.  As part of this construction project, we will replace Caley Elementary and Gulph Elementary.  The latter will be opened up as a K-4 elementary center.  I am very excited to be overseeing these projects and we expect to break ground in the spring of 2017!  


The addition of these new buildings will give us some much-needed flexibility to begin offering Kindergarten as a full day program thus getting away from half day K.  We will also be able to free up space that will offer greater flexibility with our elementary population and the expected growth in the future.       

 

I will be at the following Back-to-School Nights with the specific purpose of bringing information to the community about the building projects.  Unless otherwise indicated, stop by the library to chat!
