Lakes Middle School

  • New gym floor at Lakes

    Overview: 

    A long-anticipated update of Lakes Middle School began in 2018 with replacement of the old gym floor. But other major improvements planned for 2018 were postponed when bids came in too high in March and were rejected.

    The $5.2 million expansion and update of Lakes is expected to begin in spring 2019 and be completed in August. Ginno Construction Co. has been selected as general contractor.

    Lead architect on this project is Cory Trapp (Longwell + Trapp) who previously worked with our district on the earlier Lakes remodel.
