Lakes Middle School

  • New gym floor at Lakes


    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 and were rejected.

    The expansion and update of Lakes will 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 Architects) who previously worked with our district on the earlier Lakes remodel.
