Rendering of Outside the New Elementary SchoolDear Families, Faculty, and Staff,

We hope you are having a wonderful summer. We are writing today to share an exciting update with you on the design and construction of the new elementary school that will consolidate Henry Clay and John M. Gandy elementary schools.

At its meeting Tuesday night, the Hanover County School Board received an update on the design of the school from Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates, who is the architectural firm leading these efforts in conjunction with our team. The update, which you can find on BoardDocs, includes the finalized renderings of both the inside and outside of the new school as well as the site plan. This beautiful student-centered, state-of-the-art facility will truly unite the two schools. We believe the entire community will be proud of this building, and we are grateful for the community input and support that has led us to this point. We are excited to share that we anticipate breaking ground this fall and remain on track for a 2024-25 school year opening!

Tuesday night’s presentation was the latest step in a series of developments related to the building of the school, which will be the first new school building in our county since Laurel Meadow Elementary School in 2008. We encourage you to visit our website to learn more about the timeline that has gotten us to this point.

We will continue to share with you significant updates regarding the project and will be updating our website throughout construction. In the meantime, we hope you have a great rest of your summer.

Thank you for your continued support.
