Red Cedar

Letter from Kath Edsall

The East Lansing School Board voted unanimously to put a ballot forth on May 2nd to address our elementary buildings. Many of us worked very hard to get to this point. As was stated at the meeting where it was approved, "It may not be perfect, but it is good enough". Compromises were made by all sides and the resultant bond will be a win for the city and a win for the Red Cedar neighborhood.

Glencairn, Marble, Donley, Whitehills and Pinecrest will all be scrapped and rebuilt. Red Cedar will be significantly remodeled. The reason for the difference is because Red Cedar was built earlier, with larger spaces and better "bones". The others were shipped here in parts and slapped up quickly during the baby boom and have long since outlived their life expectancy.

This work will be done in phases: Red Cedar will be remodeled first and the new Donley will be built on the site next to "old Donley". Red Cedar and Old Donley will then be used to house students from the other buildings while those buildings are rebuilt. Red Cedar should be ready for students by 2018, Donley by 2019. Each new build will take approximately 18 months. When everything is completed, Red Cedar will house 1 section each of K-5, the district's early childhood programming (preschool special education, GSRP and possible some Head Start) and there will be room left to bring in more preschool. The other five buildings will each house 2 sections K-5.
