Contractors who were itching to get into Parker Elementary School for a $5.9 million remodeling project said they are on target to complete the project in time for the start of school, according to Parker Elementary School Principal Mike Malmberg.
When school opens in the fall, the K-5 building will be more secure thanks to closed classrooms, a vestibule at the entrance of the front of the school and repositioned front offices. There are many other changes, too.
Malmberg has been giving tours of the school, which tourists say has already taken on an entirely new look with what has been done so far.
