Open house offers a preview of the new Peter S. Ogden Elementary design this afternoon

The new Peter S. Ogden Elementary won’t open until fall 2019, but the public is invited to a preview of the future school. Preliminary architectural designs will be unveiled at an open house today, Thursday, Oct. 12, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Attendees will be able to meet the architects, talk to the planning team and provide feedback. The event will be held at the school, 8100 NE 28th St. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and will continue through the 2018-19 school year, with the new school opening fall 2019. Students will continue to attend classes in the current building while their new school is being built on the northeast corner of the site. Funding for the replacement Ogden Elementary comes from a bond measure passed by voters in February 2017.
