Rushford-Peterson groundbreaking ceremony


Mon, Oct 12th, 2015
Posted in Rushford Education

Rushford-Peterson Schools is pleased to announce the groundbreaking ceremony for the new EC-12th grade school to be held on Wednesday, October 14 at 1:30 p.m. at R-P Schools Niggle Field.

In November, 2014, Rushford-Peterson Schools held a referendum in which the communities of the City Rushford, the City of Rushford Village and the City of Peterson voted in favor of the building of the new EC-12th grade school. In January, 2015, the school district developed a Design Team which blended community members, business owners, teachers, administration and the architectural firm ATS&R to design the new school. In July, the design was presented to the School Board and final bids were received on September 24, 2015. At the special School Board meeting held on September 28, 2015, the School Board accepted the bid of Wieser Brothers Construction from LaCrescent, Minn. with a bid of $33,406,770.

We are excited to begin laying the foundation for the future and look forward to the construction of the new school. We invite all area community members to come and celebrate this event. For more information including the design of the new school, please visit our website at www.r-pschools.com.
