Upper Elementary Building Almost Ready For Students
4th & 5th Grade Teacher Finally Have Access To Their Rooms
Finish Up Work Continues At All Campuses For First Day of Classes August 13th
Asphalt is finally down and lane markings, arrows and crosswalks are still being painted for a myraid of paths to get students to and from classes at 3 adjacent buildings for pre-K through 5th grade (ECC-Herald-Upper Elementary). This view (from 129th E. Ave) towards the new Collinsville Upper Elementary (CUE) shows the southern-most exit to 129th and two entry lanes that come off of 129th nearer Herald. The drop-off and pick-ups will be behind the buildings to help draw traffic off of 129th that had experienced backups in prior years with fewer students. I have requested a map/drawing to give an overview of all the lanes and bus loops and hope to have that online before classes begin. -- Ted Wright (7/27/2015)
The "old" bus loop that ran between Herald and ECC has been lenghtened and extends to also service the northern end of the upper elementary.
These two lanes run south by the eastern side of the new Upper Elementary (with a large speed bump) coming from behind Herald.
All the bare construction dirt will soon be covered by sod and the final pads for playground equipment poured.
4th and 5th grade teachers did not get access to their classrooms to start unloading boxes until July 20th. The "Cardinal" tile leading into the upper elementary commons was partially complete Friday July 24th.
Workers are still putting finishing touches on the new 4th-5th grade building with less than 3 weeks before students are set to walk the halls (August 11th Meet the Teacher Night and August 13th start of classes).
