Have you noticed all the new homes being built in our
area? That will mean an influx of new
students in the White River School District and we will be ready! Our architects are hard at work drawing up
plans to add 10 classrooms (approximately 30,000 square feet) at Elk Ridge
Elementary. Our current enrollment at
Elk Ridge is right around 400, and the new classrooms will allow growth to
accommodate about 600 students.
In Phase I, which is estimated to begin in the summer of
2017, the new wing will be added to the northwest side of the campus. The
cafeteria, gym and administration offices will remain operational during this
phase, and students will stay on campus.
Phase II will begin in the summer of 2018. At that point, we will modernize the existing
building and add a new play area and entry plaza. Completion is slated for early spring of
