Kelly Renovations to Welcome Yujin Gakuen

Facility improvements to co-locate Japanese immersion program at Kelly Middle School on track for fall 2020

With the community’s overwhelming support of the 2018 school bond measure, important capital improvements are being completed throughout the school district.

The new North Eugene High School, one of three new school buildings funded by the bond measure, will be a high-quality school building designed for safety and security, efficiency and sustainability, and modern teaching and learning, including career technical education. The new school will be a community asset for years to come.

The new high school building will be located on the site of the old Silver Lea building that previously housed Yujin Gakuen Japanese Immersion Elementary School. The Silver Lea building will be demolished this winter to make way for construction.

Yujin Gakuen will move to a new space, co-located with Kelly Middle School. While Kelly is by far the largest middle school building in the district and has room to house the new student population, important renovations are being made this summer to provide appropriate space for the elementary school and middle school to operate in different wings of the building.

Contractors are hard at work converting middle school spaces to provide 14 elementary classrooms, adding new classroom sinks, creating a separate elementary library, adding a new playground, improving the south entry for separate vehicle drop-off for elementary students, and finishing restroom improvements to accommodate elementary students.

Additional exterior work, such as painting, is being completed at the same time. The work is on track for completion before the 2020–21 school year.

As construction and projects progress, the district will publish updates, photos and videos from the worksites to social media and the district website.
