The status of Luxemburg-Casco School District projects made possible by the approval of a $27.8 million, two question referendum earlier this year depends on which building you ask. Work to flip the intermediate school office to make a more secure entrance is already finished. The primary school is getting a new playground to make room for an expansion of its kindergarten wing. The high school, however, is behind on its planning for the building’s new gym, wrestling room, cafeteria, and fitness center. Superintendent Glenn Schlender says the struggle is making sure they include everything they can while sticking to their budget.
Schlender says the district is preparing to start working on plans for the new middle school building in Luxemburg after approving its move from Casco in the spring election. Community members can get project updates and give their opinion during upcoming school board meetings.
