August 2019 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=40 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=40{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}August 2019The renovation project is wrapping up and the transformation of the school from the work this past year is amazing. The renovations will help the school look, feel, and perform better. While construction will be substantially complete and the building will be safe, comfortable, and ready for students, there will still be some very minor work to finish up final items taking place evenings and weekends outside of school hours. We appreciate the patience, understanding, and cooperation of the entire Nederland Elementary community through this project. We are grateful for the investment of BVSD taxpayers in the school which will benefit students and teachers for many years to come.,
