Groundbreaking Three New Elementary Schools
The elementary school construction project is well underway with the recent groundbreaking for Lohr, Watson and Southway elementary schools on Tuesday, Sept. 13. The sites are now ready for the next step, which will include excavating the grounds, creating the construction entrances, establishing the drive lanes & parking lots and early installations of utilities. Construction of the footers and walls will begin in February/March, depending on the weather, with the roofing on all three new buildings being completed in the fall of 2023. The schools’ interiors will be completed in the spring of 2024. All this work will have us on track to open the buildings for staff training sessions and move in by early summer 2024.
