Designs have been approved for two more Salina schools.
According to USD 305, schematic designs have been approved for Schilling and Stewart elementary schools. The school board approved the plans this week at the Tuesday board meeting. Both schools will receive four new kindergarten classrooms, a multi-purpose storm shelter and a controlled entry.
Schilling’s new addition, including the multi-purpose storm shelter and kindergarten classrooms, will be located on the east side of the building. The playground will be on the south side of the new addition. At the office door, a vestibule will be created that will provide secure entry. A new bus lane on the north side of the school will help to separate the areas where students are dropped off by parents and by buses.
Stewart’s new addition, including the multi-purpose storm shelter and kindergarten classrooms, will be located on the east side of the building. At the office door, the vestibule will be expanded to provide secure entry.
Schilling’s project is expected to be bid in July and Stewart will be bid in August. For both buildings, construction is planned to begin in the fall and will be completed during the 2016-17 school year. All-day kindergarten will be available in all USD 305 elementary schools at the start of the 2016-17 school year.
Both Schilling and Stewart, like other building projects, have secondary needs identified which will be addressed only if the budget permits. The approved designs will be available on large posters in the school offices and details can be seen by visiting the building webpages.
