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 Bach Elementary will be receiving air conditioning and lighting upgrades, along with new power equipment installed on the rooftop. This work may result in areas around the school and parking lot that are being blocked off for equipment and construction crew. Bach will also be receiving paving improvements that will result in the temporary closing of the school’s main parking lots as this work is taking place. Thank you for your patience as we complete this work.
