NEAH BAY: New middle school building due in June 2002

NEAH BAY — Middle school students should have a new academic home next year.

About 70 middle-schoolers now attend class in portable buildings, which will be replaced by a permanent building by June 2002, Cape Flattery School District Superintendent Gene Laes said Monday.

Construction is expect to start next month, he said.

The new building will include a gymnasium, to be used by elementary as well as middle school students, a 2,200-square-foot media resource room, which will contain a library and computers, and five classrooms.

The building, estimated to cost between $2.1 million and $2.2 million, will be financed through available funds and a loan which the school district intends to repay from general operating funds, Laes said.

More than $1.48 million has been saved by the district during the past six or seven years, Laes said. Good money management and business procedures were the key, he said.

No programs were cut, he said.
