USD 421 considers school addition

The Lyndon Board of Education is in the planning stages of a project that if approved would create a structure to connect the grade school to the high school and remove a street separating the two structures.

Following a wave of school violence over the last decade, the board is concerned the current setup may not be very secure, especially with students crossing 6th street multiple times a day.

Lyndon Mayor Brandon Smith says his office hasn't had much to do with the planning so far.

If a design is approved, 6th street would be rerouted around new school construction rather than cutting between the two buildings.
