Lots of progress has been made at the new elementary school at the Lacey site in Annandale, although the project is still a bit behind schedule. It’s expected to be completed in February and will open for business in September 2012.
The roof framing is done, and workers have started installing the roof decking, says Joseph Krzywicki, the on-site field construction representative for Fairfax County Public Schools. Work is under way on the brick façade and roughing in the mechanics on the first floor. The driveway aprons are done, and new curbs, sidewalks, roadwork are underway on Crest Drive.
The new Annandale area boundary plan approved by the FCPS school board July 28 set the attendance area for the new school, as well as adjusted various middle and high school boundaries to relieve overcrowding at Annandale High School. Parts of the enrollment at Annandale Terrace, Beech Tree, Belvedere, and Woodburn will attend the new school.
