Lake Country School’s Upcoming Renovation in Spring 2020

Perspective View - Exterior Play Place

Lake Country School’s Board of Trustees is thrilled to announce that our Facilities Master Plan is moving forward into construction. In 2015, LCS began an audit of the current facilities and progressed to a full Facilities Master Plan to address the current and future needs for the LCS learning environments. The Facilities Master Plan includes multiple phases that will improve our facility over the next 20+ years. Knutson Construction has been hired with confidence and is set to begin construction in Spring 2020. The project will be completed in Fall 2020.

This renovation will start with the decommissioning of the current front entrance and stairwell to make room for additional program, meeting, and gathering space for the LCS community. There will be an addition to the front of the building that will provide a welcoming and more secure entrance, a third-floor industrial technology design lab, a staff room, offices, a student health area, a reconfigured cafeteria, new elevator, and more.

The project expands the support of current programming and administrative areas. Once the project is complete, there will be no change in enrollment or permanent impact to our parking lot space.

Please visit in the coming weeks. Information will be posted soon, including weekly project updates and a construction calendar, as well as general details about the project. All are welcome to stop by LCS during the month of March for one last look before Knutson Construction begins. We’d like to thank all our neighbors for their continued support and understanding as we begin these exciting developments for our school.
