Construction Plan for Sanger

This suggestion includes a 3-story addition with 8 classrooms on each floor. The addition would sit on the same footprint where part of the current building sits. When all of the construction is completed, all of the current portables will be gone, so there should actually be less ground covered by buildings than is currently covered by the existing building and the existing portables.

In the picture, you will see portables in the front (in green). These would temporary to be used during the construction period.

You will also see a new drop off lane proposed as well as a small queue added in the current parking lot.
