Hazeldale Elementary Exterior

The new Hazeldale Elementary School opened its doors in August 2018. Hazeldale students and staff spent the 2017-2018 school year in a temporary school in the Timberland area, while their school was demolished and rebuilt. 

Hazeldale Elementary School is the second of four schools to be replaced as part of the District's $680 million construction bond approved by voters in May 2014. The previous building, built in 1942, was torn down and replaced with a modern, 87,2​00 sq.ft., two-story building that holds 750 students. 

The District worked closely with DLR Group Architects on the design of the facility, as well as General Contractor Kirby Nagelhout on the construction. The same design was​ used as a prototype for William Walker Elementary, Vose Elementary and Sato Elementary School, saving money and time.

Budget: $31,756,000
Funding: 2014 Bond
Schedule: 06/2017 - 09/2018
Status: Complete
