Construction Updates at Bellevue Independent Schools

GES Update: New Flooring Update

Today’s walkthrough of the GES construction progress gave perhaps the clearest vision to date of the future of our building. New flooring has been laid throughout the second-floor hallway, creating a space that is clean, safe, and comfortable for our students.

With so much of this district-wide project being the unseen, like HVAC ductwork, seeing the new floor was like an early start to the holidays. I am thrilled that we are able to give students and staff the facilities they deserve.

Over the Thanksgiving break, this project is scheduled to continue throughout the first floor. We look forward to surprising our students with more visible progress toward a brand new Grandview as we welcome them back to class next Monday.

Sneak Peek- Inside the new GES Entrance

The exterior of the new GES entrance is beginning to take shape, allowing families to see the progress of the beautiful new exterior in real time. Soon, the glass atrium will go in, creating a new layer of security for our students and staff.

Behind the temporary wooden door, major changes are underway in two former classrooms. The new main office area is well underway, creating an inviting new reception area, as well as office spaces, a conference room, and a state of the art nurses station!

Thanks to the amazing efforts of our construction team, the new GES entrance will be up and running in just a few short months. Stay tuned for more updates as this space inches nearer to completion. We hope you are as excited as we are for the new and improved Grandview Elementary!



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!
