After a well-attended groundbreaking ceremony on a cold day in November, questions may be arising about the progress of the building addition. During the building permit and plan review process, MnDOT required a traffic study be conducted because a component of the St. Francis Elementary School (SFES) and St. Francis Middle School site entrance accesses MN Highway 47. Due to this request, construction at SFES, which was originally scheduled for a late fall/early winter start, will not begin until the school district and city have an opportunity to review the study and work with MnDOT to resolve any pending issues. In addition, the school district will likely need to adjust the overall bond construction schedule to accommodate this change.
The St. Francis Area Schools Bond Oversight Committee recognizes these changes may impact students, staff and parents, and appreciates your understanding through the process. We will continue to keep you updated as new information is available.
