After 12 months of extensive construction and renovation efforts, much-needed new classrooms at Washington and Lincoln Elementary schools are nearly complete. Lynwood Unified is celebrating the milestone with ribbon-cutting ceremonies in early September that will feature speeches from District staff and local elected officials, as well as tours led by teachers and students at the schools. More specific information will be available in coming weeks. Washington Elementary removed 29 portable classrooms and replaced them with two, two-story buildings, each featuring eight classrooms. At Lincoln Elementary, 17 portable classrooms were replaced with one, two-story building with 14 classrooms. The projects are partly funded under the Measure K facilities bond.
