Construction Updates

8/11/19
USD 287, Hanson Design Architects and Mar Lan Construction are pleased to announce the beginning of the USD 287 School Improvement Project.  Building and site enhancements will be made at all three campuses with construction starting on the WFMS/HS campus.  As students and staff return to school, please be aware of changes that will be taking place that may inconvenience USD 287 patrons, students and staff.  Construction updates will be made available on a regular basis through the district’s website (http://www.usd287.org) and social media pages.

You may have noticed changes are already occurring on the WFMS/HS campus.  Construction fencing has been erected, building access has changed, and demolition of some existing structures has started.  We ask that throughout the construction process patrons, staff and students please follow all safety precautions.  Nobody should enter the construction zones at any time.  Everyone should pay attention around these areas as construction traffic will increase.  All construction equipment will be located within the construction zones.

If you are coming to the WFMS/HS campus you will notice that parking will be very limited.  However, both parking lots on the WFMS/HS campus will remain open.  Extra parking will be available on the north side of the agricultural shop south of K-68.  Handicap parking will be available in the west parking lot on both the south end and in the northeast corner.

Access to WFHS (100 Building) and Gymnasium (200 Building) has changed.  Entrances to the main high school building will be on the south side of the multi-purpose room (opposite side of the traditional entrance) and on the northwest corner of the north side of the building.  The northwest corner entrance is designated as the handicap accessible entrance.

The main entrance to the Gymnasium will be on the north side of the building at the northwest doors.  The original main entrance on the west side will remain a handicap accessible-only entrance.  All other persons should use the entrance on the north side of the building.  

At this time access to WFMS (700 Building) will remain unchanged.

Please keep in mind that because of construction zones, those that park in the south lot will need to walk around the south and west sides of the 100 Building to access the new entrance to the Gymnasium.

As you enter our buildings please familiarize yourself with the available emergency exits as some doors have been closed due to the construction zones.  Emergency exits for the 100 Building will be on the north side, the south side of the multi-purpose room, and the south side of the building by K-68.  Emergency exits for the 200 Building will be the west doors and both sets of doors on the north side of the building.

Thank you for your patience during our school improvement projects.
