The Lloydminster Comprehensive High School will be a construction site throughout the summer.
On April 26th, the Lloydminster Public School Division (LPSD) announced their plans to create a bus lane and visitor parking lot at the front of the school as well as upgrading the façade.
“Over the years, we’ve got feedback from our parents and our community, as it was difficult to decide which was the front entrance of LCHS. This project will allow us to provide a bus pull-through for our students, which allow our buses to load and unload safely. We’re adding a parking lot for our students. Over the years, certainly, the number of students driving to school has increased, and we’re really excited about the addition of a visitor parking lot, adjacent to the front entrance of the school. Just creating a more welcoming and inviting environment for our community and our parents,” says Todd Robinson, Director of Education with LPSD.
The Lloydminster Comprehensive High School was built in 1968, and in recent years students and staff of the school have had an ongoing issue with limited parking. In total, this project will see 28 visitor parking stalls created, as well as an additional 44 student parking stalls.
Work on the school’s grounds will commence at the beginning of the summer, ongoing from late May or early June until completion in mid-September, but Robinson hopes it will be by the end of August, before school starts, if everything goes as planned, namely, good summer weather.
Robinson says planning for the project has been going on for about a year and a half, as well as proactive saving for such a project, which has a price tag of $1,000,000.
