A design team is working to create a replacement academic wing of the building, plus a reconstructed office including a secure entrance, a new STEM lab, and a new media center.
The site will also have redesigned parking for improved traffic flow, including a new bus loop.
Students will remain in the current facility during construction of the new wing. Once the new wing is completed, students will move into that area, allowing the previous wing to be removed.
The construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2020 and conclude in the fall of 2021.
The kitchen layout was discussed with the Food Service Staff. (Sept. 11)
The design team discussed a potential outdoor learning space and the cabinet areas in the office. (Aug. 28)
- The Webber group discussed the challenge of water retention as a part of the new wing and the driveways/parking flow. Inside the building, they refined the locker types and locations plus the examination of the extended learning areas and what will be located in that area. The committee is continuing towards final schematics and renderings of both indoor and outdoor spaces.
- Previously, the design team spent significant time discussing the various elevations of the land, assessing where the addition will be placed and how it will be designed.
- There will be more concrete added to the front, providing increased walking space between building and the current front drive.
- The secure entrance is being designed so that visitors must be buzzed in after appearing on a camera and will receive a printed badge for identification in the office before they can enter the rest of the building.
- The design team is working to ensure multiple layers of security, a district standard across all elementary schools.
