Community invited to Mead Elementary School Open House event
Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is “Building on Success.” That’s the district’s plan to build schools and to provide quality learning environments. It is based on a set of recommendations from a community-based Long-Term Facilities Planning Task Force. An April 2016 bond measure funds the first set of recommended projects. One of those projects is the project to rebuild and enlarge Margaret Mead Elementary school to accommodate 550 students.
Community members are invited to join LWSD staff for an update on this project. Input from parents, staff, and community members is vital at this point in the design process.
The meeting is scheduled for:
· Tuesday, March 28, 2017 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Mead Elementary (1725 216th Avenue NE, Sammamish)
An open house format is planned. Posters that illustrate various aspects of the project will be set out around the room. LWSD staff and architects will be available to answer questions and gather feedback. Read more.
