Facility Planning Meeting Announced
Questions and Comments Welcome
I would like to invite you to an informational meeting regarding the potential construction of an addition to Northview Elementary School. The meeting will be held in the Parkside School choral room on Wednesday, December 11th, at 6:00 p.m. If you are interested in attending, please park and enter at the east main entrance and someone will direct you to the meeting location.
The purpose of this meeting is to provide parents, neighbors, community members and taxpayers with facts and information regarding our plans so far, as well as to give you the opportunity to express any concerns or ask any questions. I will be facilitating the meeting and answering your questions, as will our lead architect from Healy Bender and Associates and members of the Peru Elementary School District 124 Board of Education.
As you already know, the Board has provided the direction for the district to move forward with the detailed planning for a 40,000 square foot addition that will bring all of our PreK through 4th grade students and staff under one roof at Northview. As a result, we plan to close Washington School and move our school district from three campuses to two. It is our goal to finance this project solely with state construction grant funds, while saving our local property taxpayers millions of dollars. Needless to say, this is another incredible opportunity for our children, our school district and our community, but we want to make sure we answer your questions and gain as much community feedback as possible throughout the process.
Whether you are able to attend the meeting or not, we continue to provide all of the facility planning details at www.perued.net under "District" and "Long-Term Facility Planning".
Please contact my office at 815-223-0486 or shoot me a message at email@example.com if you have any questions at all. Thank you very much!
