Summer Construction Update!

You might notice some work taking place in and around your school this summer. Construction will begin during summer break on projects approved as part of the 2019 bond, including those that will enhance the health, safety and learning experience for students and staff. This summer Abbot Elementary will be getting a new coating for their rooftop. This work may result in areas around the school and parking lot that are being blocked off for equipment and construction crew. Thank you for your patience as we complete this work.
