With continuing near record enrollment, the Natrona County School District’s elementary classrooms are filled to near capacity. Aging buildings and landlocked campuses are becoming too small and inefficient for the growing community. To address the need for expansion and more modern learning environments, NCSD will break ground on a brand new elementary school on Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014 at 10:30 a.m.
Lincoln Elementary will be built on land next to the Boys & Girls Club of Central Wyoming off of East “K” Street. Once it is built, it will replace the current North Casper Elementary on N. Glenarm. Lincoln Elementary will feature four classrooms of kindergarten through third grade and three classrooms of fourth and fifth grade. At just over 53,000 square feet, the two-level school will offer almost 20,000 more square feet than North Casper Elementary offers and will be able to support 385 students.
The new school is expected to be ready for the 2015-16 school year.
Families, interested community members, and the media are invited to the official groundbreaking ceremony for Lincoln Elementary, located at 945 N. Jane Street, Casper. The ceremony will feature a special guest star who is celebrating a birthday on that very day.
With support from the State School Facilities Department, the school is designed by MOA Architecture of Casper and will be built under the coordination of AP Wyoming.
