Bond Construction Updates
Construction Projects Underway this Summer
We continue to move forward on our bond-funded facility upgrade projects. A great deal of construction is underway this summer, which includes:
Kings Beach Elementary School
Following the last day of school, we began the final phase of modernization of the core area of Kings Beach Elementary School, including the new installation and repair of existing roofs, new windows in the multi-purpose room, interior and exterior paint, a new kindergarten playground, landscaping, new main corridor flooring and ceilings, and fire alarm system upgrades.
We are excited to share that the construction of our new classroom wing is almost complete and will open up for the new school year on September 3. Please save the date for our Kings Beach Elementary Dedication Ceremony on Thursday, September 12, 2019, at 4:30 p.m. at Kings Beach Elementary to celebrate the completion of this upgrade project. The entire community is invited.
Tahoe Lake Elementary
The second phase of this project, the major renovation of the school, is in full swing and a great deal of progress has been made this summer. The new building connector between the administrative building and the building that houses the historical Little Auditorium is under construction. Work is also underway on the interior and exterior of the buildings, including the roof installation on the new building that will house the administrative area and new classrooms.
A new classroom wing is under construction at Truckee Elementary that will house Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, first grade, Special Day Class, Preschool Special Day Class, and the Truckee Elementary Preschool. Ten of our portable classrooms are being removed this summer. We are also working on mechanical upgrades and new finishes in the main hallway for grades two, three, and four. All of this work will be completed and open for the first day of school on September 3, 2019.
Truckee High School
Construction is underway on Increment II, the modernization of the Truckee High School building. Approximately 7,000 square feet of new construction will house a new library and a new administration office. Other upgrades include enhancements to the girl's locker room, mechanical and electrical upgrades, and new finishes throughout the building.
We are incredibly appreciative of the generous support from our community to make these important upgrades. For more information on these projects or for a complete list of projects and associated timelines, please visit our website at www.ttusd.org.
