Now Open, Deer Canyon Classroom Building Ribbon Cutting Set for Jan. 24

The Alta Loma School District will officially christen the newly constructed 11,500-square-foot classroom building at Deer Canyon Elementary School on Friday, Jan. 24.


City officials, local legislators, ALSD school board members and district administrators are expected to join Deer Canyon staff and students for the grand opening ceremony, which will begin at 9 a.m.


“This new facility is something that will serve students in our community for decades and generations to come,” said ALSD Superintendent James Moore.


Construction on the new building began in October 2018 and was completed in December. It officially opened to students following winter break on Jan. 6.


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


“This building and our other construction, renovation and modernization projects are only possible because of Measure H,” Moore said. “And we have the community to thank for their confidence and support in passing that bond measure in the fall of 2016.”


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.


“The attention to the educational environment is something you will see throughout the district as we continue to renovate and modernize classrooms at our other schools, thanks to our Measure H funding,” Moore said.
