Marie Sweley Board Secretary New Road Moving Forward When students and staff return to school they will see a brand new road leading north between the playground and elementrary building. The new driveway/road between the two buildings is just about finished. The new road will be easier to clean in the winter and keep ice and water from settling in the potholes and cracks. This will make for safer walking for the students, staff, and visitors around the playground and elementary school.
