Ruby Bridges Elementary is in its final months of construction, as it is set to open for the 2020-21 school year. In June, the school received a temporary certificate of occupancy. The full certificate of occupancy is projected to be received at the end of July.
During June, the first set of furniture was delivered, as was custodial equipment. Commissioning continues to be ongoing for the school’s HVAC system. Additionally, the kitchen hood permit was approved and the fully accessible playground was completed.
Also, the punch list for the Washington State Department of Transportation was completed, which included adding striping to the roundabout and sidewalk improvements. The construction team continues to work through the remainder of the school’s punch list.
This project was made possible by the generous support of Northshore voters, who approved the 2018 bond.
