The new Hazeldale Elementary School opened its doors on Monday, August 27, 2018, to welcome students for the start of the 2018-2019 school year. The 87,200 square foot school includes 32 classrooms, 9 additional teaching spaces, a stage, teaching area in the library and a dividable gym. It has a capacity of 750 students.

Hazeldale Elementary School is the second of four schools to be replaced as part of the District's $680 million construction bond approved by voters in May 2014. The previous building, built in 1942, was torn down during the summer of 2017. Hazeldale students and staff spent the 2017-2018 school year in a temporary school in the Timberland area, while their new school was constructed.

The District worked closely with DLR Group Architects on the design of the facility, as well as General Contractor Kirby Nagelhout on the construction. The prototype was​ used for William Walker Elementary, Vose Elementary and Sato Elementary School, saving money and time.

This summer, crews demolished the old William Walker Elementary School building, to make way for the new school building.

The District held the official Groundbreaking Ceremony for William Walker Elementary School on Saturday, September 15, 2018. William Walker is the third of four schools to be replaced.

Demolition of the former school is complete and General Contractor Kirby Nagelhout is working to build a modern, 87,200 sq.ft., two-story building that will hold 750 students and will open in the fall of 2019.

The prototype by DLR Architects was used for Hazeldale Elementary, Vose Elementary and Sato Elementary. Visit the William Walker Elementary School Bond Project webpage.

Bethany Elementary School Repipe

The repiping of Bethany Elementary School wasn't originally scheduled for this summer. However, crews discovered damage from a water leak that could have been catastrophic, if repairs were delayed. We replaced all of the old piping with copper pipes, replaced all classroom and bathroom fixtures, as well as hot water heaters. Watch the video below to learn how they managed to make repairs underneath the school, without ripping up the floors.

Five Oaks Middle School Renovation & Addition

Big picture
Five Oaks Middle School is undergoing an extensive, multi-phase renovation as part of the 2014 Bond Program. The first phase was completed this summer. Security was improved with the removal of portable classrooms. All classrooms are now inside the main building. Nine classrooms were renovated or added.

The project is now in phase II, which includes the addition of eleven state-of-the-art classrooms, new conference space and additional restrooms.

To ensure we deliver all phases on-time, we have begun work updating the main office and reception early. Once the main office is completed, another enhancement of security will have all visitors entering directly through the main office.

The project is occupied construction, meaning construction will continue throughout the school year in certain areas of the building. Being that school is in session throughout this renovation, this construction project has afforded excellent opportunities for student involvement. So far, students have participated in building their garden beds and viewing windows have been installed for curious students and staff to watch the progress of their school’s renovation. Soon, students will be invited to take part in a guided tour through the project for a chance to see the action first hand.

The multi-phase project is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2020.

Ridgewood Elementary School HVAC Upgrades

This summer, we completed upgrades to the HVAC and electrical systems at Ridgewood Elementary School. The project involved installing brand new HVAC systems in classrooms, offices, the media center and cafeteria. Air conditioning was added to all the classrooms and office areas. Units serving the gym were refurbished and large fans were added to improve air flow. The original electrical service and electrical panels were also replaced.

Security Upgrades

Our Facilities Department is currently preparing to begin the perimeter hardening process for a third group of schools, to better control access of visitors to our schools. This summer, we installed vestibules at four schools. The vestibules allow remote control of visitor access at the main entries of our schools. We have also been installing card key access control for staff. The goal is to route all visitors through the school office.

In addition, we are in the process of replacing the hardware on approximately 2,000 classroom doors located at nearly every school in our District. This will make it more efficient for staff to lock doors quickly.
