Lincoln Elementary to grow, a little

Lincoln Elementary would receive a small addition
including seven new classrooms as part of a proposed
elementary improvement plan.

Lincoln Elementary would require the least amount of money to upgrade in order to improve the elementary system at Hastings Public Schools as proposed by a local advisory committee.

In October, Superintendent Craig Kautz revealed the recommendations for the future of the elementary buildings as proposed by a Community Facilities Advisory Committee.

Under the committee’s proposal, the Hawthorne, Lincoln and Watson elementary buildings would be expanded, while Alcott and Longfellow would both be expanded and renovated.

Meanwhile, Morton Elementary would be closed with the option of turning it into a preschool hub for the district.

Under the proposal, Lincoln Elementary would receive about $1.5 million in improvements.
