Lakeside Elementary will see improvements in both the first and second phases of the construction program. Safety and security along with the renovation of the Learning Commons will be the focus during Phase I, while replacements of the roof and major mechanical equipment will be the focus during Phase II. Additional details are provided below:
Phase I Projects (April 2015 – September 2015)
Construction of secure main entrance – The current main entrance to the building will be enhanced to provide a secure entrance to the building that requires visitors to enter the main office of the school before gaining access to the rest of the building. An additional wall will be constructed in the hallway outside the main office and a new door to the main office will be added. The addition of the wall and new door will require visitors to enter the main office prior to gaining access to the rest of the building.
Enhancement of building security cameras and card reader access to exterior doors - Current security cameras will be replaced and additional cameras will be added to improve security inside and outside the school. Additional exterior doors will receive card reader access.
Renovation of the Learning Commons - What previously was referred to as the media center, the Learning Commons at Lakeside will be renovated to provide an environment that can support teaching and learning in multiple formats and will include enhanced educational technology that supports learning.
Addition of vestibules for gymnasium entrances - Vestibules will be added to both the west and east entrances so that visitors can access the gymnasium without gaining access to the rest of the school building.
