The Blue Ridge School District now has a better idea of costs to update the Mansfield Elementary after preliminary cost information was discussed at the Feb. 15 school board meeting.
The district’s architects, Gorski Reifsteck, are conducting a 10-year health/life safety survey of all of the district’s facilities including Mansfield Elementary. Those preliminary numbers were discussed at the school board meeting.
Superintendent Susan Wilson said the architect’s estimate is for $1.5 million in health/life safety work at Mansfield Elementary as well as $2.3 million for non health/life safety items.
In the upcoming weeks, the district will host tours at the Mansfield campus as well as conduct informational meetings for the public to attend.
“Having the tours allows people to see it (the building) for themselves,” Wilson said. “We need people to decide if they want to put more money into this building or build a new facility.”
The informational meetings will include a question and answer period.
