Naples Elementary improvements roaring right along

November 30, 2021

Boundary County School District continues to make improvements following their 10-year Facilities Plan. Last week, South Boundary Fire Protection completed training to remove the oldest module on the Naples campus.

The state has approved the use of federal dollars to continue making improvements for safety and health reasons. The district is currently in the planning stages of designing an addition to the main building, so all students are in one building. By doing so, cleaning and maintaining the building will be more efficient and safe.

To continue completing projects at Naples Elementary, school district officials are working to pass a bond to increase pedestrian and traffic safety and working with the county in pursuit of grant funding to finalize the pedestrian and traffic safety routes.

Plans are underway on leasing the old Naples Elementary School to South Boundary Fire Protection. The building was scheduled to be demolished last summer, but it has sentimental value to the Naples community and the fire protection district can use the space to serve the public.

Last summer, the office area was renovated. They will be replacing exterior doors and looking at how to protect the building from drainage issues. Once the addition is complete, the portable will be removed.

"We are excited to see the improvements moving forward!
