While still the early days, USD 258 Superintendent of Schools Kay Lewis is inviting community input regarding the potential construction of a new Humboldt school or else the major renovation of an existing school building as part of a future bond issue.
The current bond will be paid off in September of 2021, explained Lewis at Monday nights school board meeting. So we probably need to start thinking about [whether] we want to go through another bond issue. [Do] we want to look at building [new]? [Do] we want to look at updating our current buildings? Or [do] we think everything looks good and we dont want to do anything.
The district high school was constructed in 1922. Lewis called it probably one of our sturdiest buildings. The elementary school was built in 1963 again, one of our sturdiest buildings. The middle school and technology building were built in 1995. Finally, the Community Fieldhouse dates back to 2007.
