Summer a hot time for school facility work

Posted: July 16, 2018 at 1:02 a.m.

NWA Democrat-Gazette/DAVID GOTTSCHALK Wilfredo Calderon, with Davis Flooring, fits a piece of LVT tile July 6 in the hallway at Woodland Junior High in Fayetteville. New tile is being put down new tile in the hallways and cafeteria of the school. Northwest Arkansas school districts are busy working on facility improvement projects while staff and students are away for the summer break.

The kids may be gone, but schools still see plenty of activity during the summer as officials prepare their buildings for another academic year.

New buildings

Work continues this summer building new schools.

• Bentonville School District is building its 12th elementary school on Haxton Road in Rogers. The school is scheduled to open in August 2019.

• Rogers School District is building its 16th elementary school at West Garrett and South Bellview roads. It is scheduled to open in August 2019.

• Arkansas Arts Academy, a charter school in Rogers, is doing a complete makeover of its high school campus. The construction and renovation phase is set to be done by the start of school next month; renovation of another building will begin at that time and take until January.
