The doors to Barranca Mesa Elementary School and Los Alamos High School will be open to the public on Saturday, Oct. 5 to showcase how bond funds have been spent. The 30-minute tours will be given from 10 a.m. to noon.
Tours of the high school start every half hour beginning at 10 a.m. and will meet in the lobby of Duane Smith Auditorium. Anyone wishing to tour Barranca Elementary should enter the school through the front doors and then head to the cafeteria.
“This is one way we are saying ‘thank you’ to the voters of Los Alamos for their support and for them to see where their dollars have been spent,” said Superintendent Kurt Steinhaus. “Improving our facilities is an important part of providing students with a quality education, and that is a top priority for the school board.”
Renovations at the high school were completed in 2012. Students and staff at Barranca moved into the new two story building at the start of the school year. Work on the 100 and 200 buildings is in progress.
“The school board has promised the community to improve our facilities across the district,” said School Board President Ellen Ben-Naim. “We continue to keep that promise and hope that the community will continue to support us as well.”
No registration is required for the tours. Light refreshments will be served.
