Farewell to the Lacey Center
The Lacey Center is almost all gone. The building at the end of Crest Drive in Annanadale that used to house a Fairfax County Public Schools administrative center is being removed to clear the way for a new elementary school. The new school is slated to open for the start of the 2012 school year. FCPS field construction representative Joseph Krzywicki says construction will start as soon as the old building is torn down and the debris is cleared away. School and community representatives serving on the FCPS Annandale Regional Planning Study are exploring options for setting the attendance boundary for the new school, as well as whether it should be K-5 or K-6 and how to relieve overcrowding at Annandale High School and other area schools.
