New Deer Canyon Classroom Building Set for 2020 Opening

The long-awaited newly constructed classroom building at Deer Canyon Elementary School will officially open to teachers and students in January, with a district-wide ribbon-cutting ceremony tentatively slated for Friday, Jan. 24.

The project is the first major construction funded through the Measure H general obligation bond approved by Alta Loma voters in November 2016.

“It’s been exciting to see all the progress we’ve made in just a few years since Measure H was approved, but it’s especially rewarding to see a much-needed construction project rise from the ground to benefit for generations to come,” said ALSD Superintendent James Moore.

Fully equipped with modern technology, equipment and furniture designed for 21st century learning environments, the 11,500-square-foot building features eight classrooms accessible from indoor corridors, along with offices, a staff room and two restrooms.

Major renovation and modernization projects continue at both Vineyard and Alta Loma junior high schools, with completion scheduled for summer 2020. Various projects at all ALSD schools also are planned for the future.
