W.C. Andrews Elementary School

New Campus under Construction
Schedule for Completion - Fall 2018
Funded by Bond 2015

Construction Update as of May 14, 2018 at 8:30 a.m.: Construction for the new W.C. Andrews Elementary School is scheduled for completion in the early Fall of 2018, with classroom move-in to follow before the opening date of this new campus. Because project timelines may have to be adjusted due to unforeseeable circumstances, like weather/rain delays, the district is planning to release a more specific schedule for school opening near the end of construction. As always, safety is a top priority and is being addressed with utmost consideration for our students and families. We are working with the City of Portland to comply with ordinances, and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) who manages traffic and school zones along Moore Avenue. Plans are in place to add a sidewalk from Stark Road to (and across the length of) the new school property. We will post additional updates regarding the progress of this campus during the last few months of construction, and thank you for your support of a school bond in 2015 that made this project possible.
