Side Creek Elementary School was built in 1987. Over the last several decades the building received updates to its HVAC system and roof, and a two-classroom addition increased the building's capacity.
For the 2016 bond program, the school is receiving improvements to both its exterior and interior. On Side Creek's exterior, contractors will be expanding the drop-off and pick-up lane in front of the building, moving the entrance to an existing parking lot and pouring a new parking lot on the west side of the school.
Inside the school, contractors will be making improvements to instructional spaces by expanding the computer labs and library. A security vestibule will also be installed at Side Creek’s main entrance. The vestibule will ensure that visitors to the school follow check-in procedures in the front office before entering the rest of the building.
