Construction Updates at Bellevue Independent Schools

A new BHS, inside and out!

Construction crews continue buzzing around our buildings, and the new vision of BHS is starting to take shape! The most stunning transformation so far can be seen in the progress on our main floor bathrooms. Beautiful new tiles are in place, ready for the installation of updated fixtures and stalls. By the end of this project, every floor of BHS will have sparkling new ADA-compliant bathrooms.

On the exterior, crews are working diligently to preserve our historic building by tuck pointing and sealing the bricks. And while this upgrade may not look as exciting as the as the new interior remodels, this necessary upkeep helps to protect from the elements, keeping our beloved school standing strong for decades to come!

A Breath of Fresh Air

Though major construction progress continues throughout our schools, we often hit periods of time where no tangible progress can be seen. Today, however, I was encouraged to see progress taking shape as I walked the third floor of BHS. This newly installed ductwork will house our new fresh air filtration system, improving air quality in our classrooms. 

I commend our students for their patience, curiosity, and positive attitudes toward these projects as we continue the necessary work to improve our buildings. It is my hope that, in watching the transformation firsthand, our students will share the pride that I feel as we move closer to a better Bellevue.

New Entry is Underway!

This week marked the official groundbreaking for the new entrance at Grandview Elementary. Over the coming months, the facade of the building will transform into a modern and inviting space that is welcoming to all. A new accessible ramp will be built into the hill, and a secure glass vestibule will give our students and staff another added layer of security.

Our crews are hard at work repairing and renovating, and are able to continue work throughout the day without disruption to classes. 

Meanwhile at BHS: as the main crews have shifted their attention to GES, the primary focus at the high school is preparing the building for the new HVAC system! Don't forget to check back in weekly as we continue to share the exciting progress at both schools.
