The School's Education Service Center was packed with subcontractors who had just delivered their bids and waited for them to be read .... some for about two hours Feb. 6th.

Chad Brewer (center) discused details of the new upper elementary (4th & 5th grade) building plans with Lance West and Steve Stout following the Feb. 19th school board special session.

Check back for more detail on the revised & new bus loops that should pull the current traffic backup issues off 129th and provide dropoff/pickup access to the three main buildings (ECC, Herald and the new upper elementary). The green highlighted area is the portion of the new elementary approved Feb. 19th. The small orange area is the alternate 1 bid area for the media center to be determined later.
