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.
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, 87,200 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
