Construction Updates: Summer 2018

A brand new Sunset Hills Elementary School is ready for students and staff to begin the 2018-2019 school year! Crews are installing final site amenities including parking, sidewalk details and landscaping. Our community is invited to a public Open House on Wednesday August 8 from 6:00-8:00pm!

Crews have made extensive progress at Swanson Elementary over the summer! Gym walls are now complete, and steel erection for the building will soon begin. Swanson students and staff will learn and work at the Swing School through the 2018-2019 school year; the brand new Swanson Elementary is set to open in the Fall of 2019.

Crews are currently working to install new parking on the east side of Westbrook Elementary. Also in progress: the foundations for the new Westside Boys and Girls Club! This project is paid for by the Boys & Girls Club of the Midlands and not part of the 2015 Major Facilities Plan.

Crews conducted exploratory work at Prairie Lane Elementary over the summer. Design research and planning for extensive remodel and additions at Prairie Lane will begin this fall.

Renovation work at Westside Middle School is complete!

WHS Theater

Thanks to the support of our generous donors, the Little Theater at Westside High School underwent a complete renovation over the summer! The new flexible learning space has soundproof walls, new flooring, and state-of-the-art technology for classroom use, team activities and community events. Designs are now being finalized for expansion of the Westside Welding Lab (made possible thanks to the Westside Foundation!); work should begin this fall. Finally, the summer roof project is expected to be complete before students begin classes August 14-15.
