The Amesbury (Mass.) district is building a $60.5 million lower elementary school for grades preK to 2.

The Daily News of Newburyport reports that  the Sgt. Jordan Shay Memorial Lower Elementary School is being built next to Cashman Elementary and is scheduled to open in March 2023.

Amesbury Mayor Kassandra Gove says the new elementary is the first school construction project in the city in decades.

The school is being named for 2005 Amesbury High School graduate Sgt. Jordan Shay, who was killed in 2009 while serving in Iraq.

Amesbury is paying for about 60% of the project; the Massachusetts School Building Authority is covering the rest.

The architect is DiNisco Design, and the project manager is NV5 and the Statehouse.
