White Pigeon Community Schools officials are scheduled to stage a ceremonial groundbreaking at 5:30 this afternoon outside Central Elementary.
Superintendent Ron Drzewski said the event marks the informal start of work following voter-approved renewal of a five-year, sinking-fund millage dedicated to school building improvements. The millage renewal request was approved a year ago and money to cover the improvements is now in hand.
School upgrades are slated to begin June 10 and conclude in late August, with all the work this first year centering on Central Elementary. Improvements include electrical, plumbing, bathroom, parking lot, and student pick-up/drop-off locations.
