Big Creek Construction Update

Big Creek Construction Update - August 3, 2022

 

Over the past year, we have shared a lot of pictures of the progress at Big Creek Elementary. We have discussed the exciting progress, but with only 3 short weeks left until the start of the school year, we wanted to share with you some things that will not be ready for the start of the year. 

  • Student lockers are not scheduled to arrive until the end of September. To help contain and manage students’ bags and coats, we have procured laundry baskets that will line the collaborative spaces in the wings.

  • Half of the building will not be available for use until approximately October 11, 2022. Areas included in the unusable space, for now, are: Gymnasium, Vocal Music Room, Instrumental Music Room, Art Room, and the permanent Main Office Area. For the interim, the Main Office and Nurses Office will be housed in the 4th Grade wing in private areas. 

  • In the unusable space will be the permanent bus entry door. For the time being, students will be dropped off and picked up at the same location. Students will then walk around to the front and enter through the main entrance. 

  • The climbing equipment for the playground will not be installed for an indefinite period. The playground will have basketball hoops, outdoor ping pong tables, a gaga pit, four square spaces, and grass fields. 

 

Be on the lookout for more information to come and please reach out to the building staff with any additional questions you may have about the status of the building.
