Phase II to open in Fall 2021.
LTA was fortunate to receive a good offer from its current lender at a time that many big projects were being put on hold because of the wildly fluctuating bond markets.
The architect has been working with school leaders since February to get the most out of the new construction space. It was originally thought there would be 10 new classrooms. With a little creative thinking, we were able to add an extra
room that will house one of the two new science labs.
Phase II will open with 14,000 square feet and 11 new classrooms, which includes the two science labs, for the fall of 2021. Phase II will primarily allow the upper school more of their own space but will benefit the other grades as well. From the beginning, LTA has been committed to establishing a thriving upper school program to complete the offering of Traditional American Education in grades K-12.
The architect submitted the plans to the state permitting agency on June 15th. The school is expecting building permits to be issued before the end of September. The first earth should be turned on Phase II in early October.
After a competitive bid process with five general contractors submitting bids, the LTA School Board selected Roche Construction, a major builder of schools from Greely, CO, to build Phase II. Roche has projected a completion date seven months from the beginning of construction.
We appreciate the patience of parents as our long-awaited parking lot will be completed in the Spring of 2021. Due to the time it takes for the approval process through El Paso County, we chose to wait until next spring in order to be less disruptive.
The new parking lot will provide 85 more parking spaces and a sidewalk. The new development will facilitate safety and convenience during pick-up and dropoff timeframes.
