        Fisher Elementary School
        We are roughly a month away from moving into the new school.  Teachers and staff will have access to their classrooms around August 21st

        • The workers are starting to complete the wall finishes, flooring, cabinetry, and other items that make the school look like it is ready for kids.
        •  
        • The four classrooms addition on the east end will be a work in progress until January.  This means that the building will look like it is far from being completed. 
        • The rest of the school however, will be ready on time.
        •  
        • The last of the demolition was accomplished yesterday.  This means that the parking, parent drop off area, and landscaping will progress as scheduled and unless some other delay takes place should be ready for the first day of school.
        •  
        • Last week, we were able to confirm that we could add a bus loop on the north side of the school.  This will enable us to separate cars and busses during morning drop off and afternoon pick up.  This will create a safer environment for everyone as these two activities will not be in the same place and parents and students will experience less congestion during these times.


        Grand Opening
         – We have scheduled a grand opening for Tuesday, September 12 from 6:30-8:00 in the evening.  We will have coffee and snacks and folks can tour the school.

         

        Lynden Middle School
        The pace of construction at LMS continues to impress.  It seems as if a small army is working on all phases of the building.  At one end, sheet rock has started and at the other end the steel structures for the high-volume cafeteria, stage, music rooms, and technology areas have been erected.  An additional 4 classrooms have been added to the scope and framing has begun on these as well.

        • Field irrigation and grass seeding is almost complete.  This should give the grass a solid year to grow before being used.
        •  
        • Roofing is about two thirds of the way complete with only the high-volume areas (gym, cafeteria, stage, music rooms and technology area) to be completed before the whole facility is rain proof.
        •  
        • The City of Lynden has begun improvements to line road.  Sidewalks, curbs, and gutters will be in place and ready for kids walking to school when the school opens in September 2018.
        •  
        • Plans continue to be developed for furniture, fixtures, and equipment.  A color scheme has been finalized and the interior designer is fine tuning coordination of walls, floors, and cabinetry.
        •  
        • Planning around the security system, security camera locations, and access controls, and ADA access are in the final stages.
        •  
        • The schedule for completion is on time and on budget. 

        Move in date is scheduled for June of 2018 with students starting school in the fall of 2018.
