Lynnwood Elementary School
Edmonds School District replaced the existing 1962 Lynnwood Elementary School, thanks to a 2014 voter-approved Capital Construction Bond, additional revenue from the sale and/or lease of District property and approval from the School Board. The new school was constructed on the original Lynnwood Elementary site and replaced the previous building. This project ran in conjunction with the Mountlake Terrace Elementary School replacement.
The previous Lynnwood Elementary School buildings were worn-out and no longer functional or conducive to our current educational model. In January 2016 the School Board approved replacement of the school. This decision was made with careful consideration of the schools physical condition, capacity issues, safety, and inadequacies of previous facility to the educational program. Replacing Lynnwood Elementary was the best value with taxpayer dollars to achieve a functional and educationally appropriate school.
The Lynnwood Elementary School design concept, budget and schedule were based on the District's Educational Specification, along with the previously completed Lynndale Elementary School project. The new facility is approximately 75,500 square feet with a two story main classroom building and a one story Gymnasium and Commons. The project includes new playground and equipment, site improvements of existing grass play field, parking, bus and auto circulation, emergency vehicle access, neighborhood pedestrian connections, security and safety, and new storm water management facilities.
The Total Project Budget for this project was $42,200,000 and construction commenced during spring/summer of 2017. The school transitioned to the former Alderwood Middle School, which was their temporary location for the 2017-18 school year while the new Lynnwood Elementary was under construction. The District completed construction in time to open the new school for students in September 2018.
