Lincoln Elementary was one of the two buildings scheduled for tear-down and replacement (the other being Field Elementary) when the referendum passed in 2018. Construction on the new school began in June 2021, and the school is on track to be completed and ready for students for the 2022-23 school year. You can watch a live camera feed of construction at Lincoln Elementary here.
On June 1, 2022, construction will begin on the new Field Elementary. At 87 years old, the existing building is past its useful life. The building has flooded multiple times and continues to take on water every time it experiences a heavy rain. The building lacks storage and classroom space, is not ADA compliant and is not equipped for future-ready learning.
