LYNDONVILLE – The school district will have a ground-breaking ceremony this morning for a $10.7 million capitol project.

District voters on Feb. 13, 2017 gave their approval for the project, 106-19, to allow a series of improvements to go forward.

State aid will pay for most of the costs. The district already has the local share in a capitol reserve account so local taxes won’t be raised because of the project.

The projects involved include roof work, new air-conditioning (currently only 1/3 of school has AC), interior renovations (including removing a wall and adding two classrooms), lighting improvements, and site work that will add parking spaces and improve traffic flow. It will also add a clearly designated drop-off spot for parents taking their children to school.

The athletic fields will also be improved with drainage, new dugouts, fencing and electric service.
