Bids to be opened for school expansion

Building specs approved.

As cafeteria expansion and Community Building remodeling plans become more specific, school officials are reaching goals.

At their meeting Monday night, school board members learned that at least 10 minutes have been added to student time in the cafeteria. Officials said a goal is to start lunchtime at 11:30 a.m. instead of 10:50 a.m.

Allowing students more time to eat closer to noon has been a concern of the board, parents and school officials.

After looking at floor plans, the board unanimously approved bid specifications. Bids will be opened and reviewed in the district office April 28. On May 2, the board will have a special meeting to accept a bid for the project.

Included in the specifications is renovation of approximately 12,000 square feet of the food service kitchen, cafeteria, concession and rest room facilities.
