Madrona K-8 Opens; Great Progress with Spruce

Posted on 03/08/2019

Madrona K-8  


Madrona opened for students Jan. 7. Thank you to the great team who pulled off furniture deliveries and installations, two school moves, classroom setups, installation of phones, connectivity for teachers from their computers to their new classroom technology, cameras, key fobs and access control, to the cleaning crews, and to the contractors for finishing. Landscaping will be ongoing through June 2019. Teachers comment on the beauty and peacefulness of the school. Students love the waterfalls, bathrooms, and playground.


Spruce Elementary


The contractors make great progress. Phase 1 of Spruce is nearly dried-in – a definite milestone celebrating a dry school with roof on, windows in, and air barrier on the walls. The contractors have portable heating units to dry out the interior walls for application of wall finishes. Mechanical and electrical systems follow the wall construction with piping to sprinkler systems, toilet facilities, and conduit to lighting, outlets and data jacks. Planning for a summer move into the new facilities has already started, along with the furniture and fixtures to outfit the new spaces.

Capital Projects Small Works Updates


Districtwide Cameras and Access control

Another phase of camera installations started over winter break and will continue through the end of the school year. This phase of the project will add over 300 multi-lens cameras across the District’s intermediate and secondary sites.  


Another phase of access control installations will commence in February. Adding scheduled electronic access control systems to various primary education sites.
