Renovations planned for 73-year-old elementary in Ellensburg, Wash.

June 11, 2021
The upgrades at Lincoln Elementary include a new gymnasium, music room, and elevator.

Lincoln Elementary School in Ellensburg, Wash., is undergoing modern renovations this summer. 

The school was built in 1948-49 and the Ellensburg (Wash.) school district is wanting to keep some of the old architectural features while achieving a modern look. 

These renovations include a new gymnasium, a new music room, new elevator and mechanical, electrical and plumbing upgrades, reports theDaily Record. The cafeteria and kitchen will be relocated to the old gym, which will become the new lunch room. The new music room will be an addition to the new gymnasium, with a removable wall so the music room can become a stage, where the audience sits in the gym.

The gym will be the largest addition to the school. With the current gym becoming the cafeteria, changes will have to be made. The plan is to remove all sports equipment such as basketball hoops, but to keep what they can, such as the hardwood floors. The floors will be re-stained and refurbished during the project. Another upgrade will be heating and air conditioning.
