Boyer Valley Upgrades Begin Soon in Dunlap, Dow City
Boyer Valley announced that two facility construction projects are set to begin this spring.
The middle and high school in Dunlap will lose parking along Highway 37 beginning Monday, March 27. Superintendent Jeremy Christiansen says this will affect procedures before and after school.
"We're looking a new gym, music room, updated ag classroom and lab, updated auditorium, and updated daycare facility. The new gym obviously would go north of the current main entrance of our high school and kind of where the old three-story building used to be many years ago," said Christiansen.
Bus loading and unloading will be moved to the southeast side of the building by the daycare entrance. Parent pick-up and drop-off will take place in the same location but they ask that people enter from 12th Street and exit down 11th Street. Students will be able to park on the west side of the building along 10th Street and spaces will be available for visitor and library parking there as well. The main entrance will still be functional and people will need to follow the sidewalk from 10th Street by the library to the front doors to enter the school.
Christiansen says the Dow City improvements are set to start on May 1.
"We are updating our kitchen. Kind of a small space. Updating that to be more user-friendly for our cooks. New and updated space for our students for activities and lunch. Also going to create a maker space area that can be used for art, computer science, and many of those 21st-century skills along with updating our daycare facility throughout that process. So we're very excited for all of the changes at both buildings," said Christiansen.
He says they will announce adjustments to breakfast and lunch routines when those are finalized.
