The new Kalama Elementary School officially opened for in-person learning earlier this year – Kalama’s first new school in 66 years!
While the district looks forward to hosting a public open house event at the school in the coming months, we want to make sure our community members have an opportunity to see the building now, as physical entry into the school has been limited due to state health mandates. With that said, thanks to our project partners at BLRB Architects, we are excited to share with you a video tour of the new facility!
In the video below, you'll learn how the school celebrates Kalama's rich history of timber, river and rail. You'll also discover how the new school is built to handle future growth, with student safety in mind.
Completed in the fall of 2020, the new elementary school was financed by a 2018 voter-approved bond, which also funded improvements to Kalama Middle School and High School.
