Groundbreaking & Excavation for New Parking Lot

Groundbreaking Event and Excavation for New Parking Lot
Posted on 04/24/2018

The past week was active with the Groundbreaking Event for the “new” Ide School and significant progress on the excavation for the new bus loop and parking lot on the northwest corner of the property.

On April 19 the official groundbreaking event was attended by hundreds of students, parents, residents, and staff!  Sue Armato, Board President, kicked off the event by thanking the community for their generous support of the project and then the Ide students provided a countdown for the ceremonial shovel ceremony.  The Ide teachers then got their chance to get down and dirty and the construction was officially started!

As you can see from the following image, we now have the beginnings of a parking lot and bus loop!  The additional pictures show what will be extinct next fall ~ nearly 100 cars parked along Manning Rd. for the Ide Open House.  The much-needed new parking lot should remove nearly all on-street parking during the 2018-19 school year!
