Lila Bringhurst Elementary School

1/12/22 Update

Approved the Opening of Lila Bringhurst Elementary School in 2022-2023

On May 8, 2019, District staff presented information to the Board on enrollment projections and timing for opening of Lila Bringhurst Elementary School to sufficiently fill a single grade level from K-5. After discussion, the Board took action, on unanimous vote, to open the Bringhurst School to the public the following school year once the student enrollment numbers reach 160 during the year.

Since December 2020, several technology and mechanical equipment installations were performed to prepare the facilities for the public. 

For the 2021-2022 school year, the enrollment numbers were below the Board’s threshold; thus, the District started using the Bringhurst School facilities to temporarily house students from the Hopkins Junior High School which is undergoing construction repairs and renovation and was not ready for safe occupancy for the new school year. Based on current construction timelines at Hopkins, the Hopkins students should be back at the Hopkins campus for the 2022-2023 school year.

As of the date, District staff has identified approximately 233 students living within the Bringhurst School boundary and currently attending other elementary schools District-wide. Under the relevant terms of the Mitigation Agreement, and pursuant to the Board’s action of May 8, 2019, the Bringhurst School must open to its students. 

Trustees discussed the possibilities opening this campus presents, from offering that growing neighborhood a school, to a home for existing and new District programs.

The Board unanimously approved opening the Bringhurst School for the 2022-2023 school year.

Dear Lila Bringhurst Neighborhood Families,

As you know, we did not open the Lila Bringhurst Elementary School this year and please know that we still look forward to opening the Lila Bringhurst Elementary School site in the future.  We wanted to reach out to share that due to unforeseen construction delays for one of our middle school programs we will be temporarily housing a middle school program at the Lila Bringhurst campus this fall.  We wanted to keep you updated on this as you may see there are students at the site for a short time. This is temporary and the middle school program will return to their permanent site as soon as possible.  We look forward to the future opening of our Lila Bringhurst Elementary School, as intended. Thank you and please feel free to reach out with any questions and please continue to visit our website for the most up to date information.    

Estimadas familias del vecindario de Lila Bringhurst,

Como saben, no abrimos la Escuela Primaria Lila Bringhurst este año y por favor sepa que todavía esperamos abrir el sitio de la Escuela Primaria Lila Bringhurst en el futuro. Queríamos comunicarnos para compartir que debido a retrasos imprevistos en la construcción de uno de nuestros programas de escuela intermedia, este otoño alojaremos temporalmente un programa de escuela intermedia en el campus de Lila Bringhurst. Queríamos mantenerlo informado sobre esto, ya que puede ver que hay estudiantes en el sitio por un corto tiempo. Esto es temporal y el programa de la escuela intermedia regresará a su sitio permanente tan pronto como sea posible. Esperamos la futura apertura de nuestra Escuela Primaria Lila Bringhurst, como estaba previsto. Gracias. No dude en comunicarse con cualquier pregunta y continúe visitando nuestro sitio web para obtener la información más actualizada.    

親愛的Lila Bringhurst鄰里家庭:

如您所知,我們今年沒有開辦 Lila Bringhurst 小學,但請注意,我們仍然期待將來會使用Lila Bringhurst 小學。 我們想與大家分享一下,由於我們一所初中學校的建築工程出現不可預見的延誤,所以我們將在今年秋季暫時讓該初中學校在 Lila Bringhurst 授課。 我們想讓您了解最新情況,因為您將會看到有學生在短時間內到此學校上課。 這是暫時性的,該初中學校將盡快返回其固定校區。 期盼我們的 Lila Bringhurst 小學在將來如期啟用。 謝謝您的關注,如有任何問題,請隨時與我們聯繫,並請繼續瀏覽我們的網站以獲取最新信息。
