The K-12 Learning Facility fully opened to our learning community on the first day of classes, August 17, 2015. The building is currently housing three communities of grades 2-5 and one community of grades 6-8 and it is currently referred to as the 2-8 learning facility based on students enrolled in the school. The concept of the building being a flexible learning space is clearly evident as it will enable the district to adjust with the changes in enrollment and growth for years to come.
Overview brochures of the facility are below (click the image).
With less than a month to go before the end of the school year, the new facility and the projects associated with it will continue to ramp up for summer work. At the end of April the playground area east of the Middle School cafeteria closed in preparation for the first transformative work to begin to prepare this area for next fall when school begins. Basketball courts are closed and temporary hoops are available in the bus loop between the middle & the high school as it is closed during the day to traffic. (See related post)
Work continues on the east wing of the building to prepare it for the partial opening this fall of 12 classrooms to accommodate students. The exterior brickwork is almost complete on this portion of the building and the focus will now begin on the interior of the structure. The interior classrooms continue to become defined, the innovative and flexible features of the space, such as the all-glass garage doors for classrooms are being installed and additional work to the exterior of the building and area around this east wing continues.
Look for video and additional coverage of an exclusive inside tour captured by our student club, the Eagle Media Team in the coming weeks.
