Announcements From Yorktown Community Schools

  • Yorktown Community Schools Construction Projects

    On September 18, the Yorktown Board of School Trustees awarded bids for renovation and expansion of Pleasant View Elementary School and for construction of a new transportations facility for the district.

    The Pleasant View project, costing approximately $4 million, will add six classrooms, three on the northwest corner and three on the southwest corner, to the building.  In addition, a new office complex will be constructed on the east side of the building, and a new cafeteria/dining area will be constructed on the southeast corner of the building.  This project is designed to greatly improve capacity, safety, and security at Pleasant View.

    The transportation facility will cost approximately $1.9 million and will be located on the south side of River Road, near the intersection with 600 W.  This project will move all bus parking and transportation-related facilities away from the YHS parking lot in order to improve safety, security, and traffic flow.

    Construction on both projects is expected to begin during Fall Break, the week of October 8, 2018, with completion expected prior to the start of the 2019-20 school year. The district has retained the Skillman Corporation, a well-respected construction management firm with wide experience in school construction and renovation, to administer these projects. Pleasant View Elementary School will be communicating with parents and guardians about changes in procedures and safety plans for the construction project. Skillman has worked closely with the district to establish a sequencing of construction that will allow for minimizing disruption and maximizing safety.  In addition, the district has employed a monitor to be stationed at the newly-designated main entrance during construction, to further enhance security.  All contractors working on site will be subject to criminal history checks, and Skillman's full-time, on-site superintendent will manage the construction work on a daily basis.

    The Pleasant View project is being funded by a bond, but, due to the retirement of other debt obligations, this project is expected to have minimal to no impact on the school tax rate.  The transportation project is being funded from accumulated cash, so it will have no impact on the school tax rate.

    All interested members of the public are invited to an informational meeting on Tuesday, September 25, beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Yorktown High School Auditorium. A brief presentation will be made regarding the projects, and members of the public are welcome to ask questions and share comments.

  • Traffic Pattern Changes

    Due to the Tiger Drive Bridge project, Yorktown Community Schools and the Town of Yorktown would like to notify you of the special traffic provisions that will be in place during both the morning arrival, from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM, and again during the afternoon dismissal, from 2:15 PM to 3:15 PM, each student day.

    The Yorktown Police Department will restrict all traffic on the Tiger Drive Bridge to one-way northbound only during both the morning arrival and the afternoon dismissal times listed above.

    All traffic leaving the YES and PVE buildings during these times will be required to turn right as has been our past practice.  This includes traffic exiting onto State Road 32 from YES and onto River Road from PVE.

    Traffic exiting YMS or YHS will be allowed to turn right or left onto Tiger Drive.

    Traffic turning right from YMS will be directed across the Tiger Drive Bridge.

    Traffic turning left from YMS will be directed to State Road 32.

    Traffic turning right from YHS will be directed to River Road, and all traffic turning left from YHS will be directed to turn right onto River Valley Road or Rachel Drive.

    Use of school transportation, carpooling, and use of bridges on Nebo Road and Priest Ford Road are encouraged to reduce traffic on Tiger Drive for the duration of the bridge project.  Your patience and understanding in this matter is greatly appreciated.

    Together with the Town of Yorktown, we will provide updates when available, and changes, if needed, during the construction process.
