    Welcome back! 20 more permanent classrooms open at elementary schools

    In April 2019, voters approved a capital construction levy that is providing $120 million in funding, collected over six years.

    Installation of operable windows at the Rose Hill Elementary addition will begin soon. The windows allow teachers to open the window to bring fresh air into the classroom. Both floors in the addition will also have restrooms near the original building. The black-and-white stripe from the original building continues around the addition, representing the school’s raccoon mascot. The school will have eight additional permanent classrooms when school begins in the fall.
