After developing an extensive Master Plan for the Carl Junction school district, the findings revealed an extensive need for safe and secure multi-purpose facilities. The 2-3 building experienced limitations and constraints in their existing cafeteria due to an inadequately sized kitchen and eating area. The existing primary school buildings were separated by a playground and neither structure provided storm shelters. Both buildings were accessed via a back alley, making the entrance to the schools difficult.
The 2-3 building benefitted from a new entrance and administration, multi-purpose cafeteria / gymnasium and a new state of the art kitchen capable of serving all of the grades in (2) lunch periods. The storm shelter at this site functions as a gymnasium with a full size basketball court and collapsible bleachers when lunch is not underway. Rubber athletic flooring was utilized to provide flexible use of the space.
