Earlier this month, Mason Public Schools officially cut the ribbon on both Alaiedon and North Aurelius Elementary buildings after 15 months of construction. Both projects, which were funded through the District’s $69.7 million bond, broke ground in April 2019.
Improvements to both schools included a new multi-purpose room, additional classrooms, and a new secure entry. Mechanical and electrical upgrades, layout changes and remodeling were also included in the project. In addition, site improvements and expanded parking will make student pick-up and drop-off safer when in-person instruction resumes.
The completion of these two projects wrap up Phase 1 of a three-phase capital improvement project for the District. Phase 2 of the project will primarily focus on the renovation of Steele Elementary. A District committee has been meeting to plan for the renovation of Steele Elementary for several months.
“We are so grateful for the continued support of the community for the bond and most recently through distance learning. It was very important to us to include the community in the celebration of these two projects even though we could not do so in person,” said Ronald Drzewicki, Ed.S., Superintendent of Mason Public Schools. “Thank you to the community, the Board of Education and the construction teams as well as the staff in the buildings for working together on this project. We are eager to begin Phase 2 of the project and start planning for the renovations of Steele Elementary.”
