Judson Middle School is the second school to complete construction

In 2018, voters approved a $619.7 million bond to fund improvements across the district. Judson Middle School was among the first schools to begin construction in the bond program and is the second project to be completed. Today, the district released a video of a virtual ribbon-cutting celebration to mark the completion of work at Judson.

Judson Middle School began bond-funded construction in June 2019. Construction added four new science labs, three new classrooms, a cafeteria expansion, a new secured check-in space at the front entry, a new multipurpose fitness room and many other improvements to the current facility. The increased capacity will help serve Judson’s growing student population. Over $15.4 million was invested into improvements at Judson Middle School.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, students will start the school year remotely. “We know our parents and students are eager for the time when it’s safe to return to in-person instruction in this beautifully renovated building! Please know that the team at Judson feels the exact same way,” said Judson Principal Alicia Kruska. “Until then, our staff will be able to use these renovated spaces to provide comprehensive distance learning to our students.”

“As we face unprecedented world events such as the COVID-19 outbreak, we couldn’t be more proud of our team and partners for finishing Judson on time. We can’t wait to safely welcome students back to these brand new learning spaces, ” said Superintendent Christy Perry. “ We can’t thank our community enough for supporting these important and much-needed changes to our facilities.”

This virtual ribbon-cutting celebration marks the completion of construction at Judson Middle School. The video includes Judson student-speakers and a tour of the newly constructed spaces.
