Lake Country School’s 2021 Renovation & Addition Project

Perspective View - Exterior Parking

We have exciting news to share! The Lake Country School Board of Trustees voted to move forward with Phase 1 of the Facilities Master Plan and undergo construction on the front entrance of the urban campus this spring. Some of the initial work began in December 2020 with removal of the red statue by the front entrance; the statue will be put into storage until the project is completed.

You may remember that we were slated to begin construction last Spring but voted to postpone due to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and related financial uncertainties. The project stems from the 2013 Strategic Plan and subsequent development of a Facilities Master Plan. It is the first in a series of renovations that will occur over the next 10-15 years. The positive impacts to LCS are numerous as listed below and reflect the LCS values of: Love of Work, Integrity, Partnership, Community, Responsibility, and Stewardship.

  

The main parts of this project are:

  • New Entrance - more welcoming and safer
  • Gathering Space/Interior Courtyard
  • Innovation Lab on New 3rd Floor
  • New Research Center
  • Staff Room
  • Conference Room
  • Wellness Coordinator Office
  • Material Making Room
  • Reconfigured Cafeteria
  • More Extended Day Space
  • Administrative Offices
  • New Elevator
  • Set-up for Future Renovations

The LCS Board of Trustees conducted thorough financial modeling and assessed the risks of moving forward with this work. We evaluated whether or not this project supports the mission, vision, and values of Lake Country School. Given all of these considerations and considerable discussion, the board voted unanimously to move forward with construction in the spring of 2021! 

We are thrilled to move forward with this project and we will share more about it as construction begins.

Sincerely, 

LCS Board of Trustees
