LASD breaks ground on new elementary.

LUDINGTON — Ludington Area School District ceremoniously broke ground on its new elementary complex Friday morning. The complex, to be located near the southwest corner of Jebavy Drive and Bryant Road, is part of the $100 million bond issue passed by district voters in May of 2019.

The event began with a ceremony in L.F. Peterson Auditorium and then moved to the construction site.

The new elementary school combines the existing elementary buildings into one. During the groundbreaking, students representing Franklin, Foster, and Lakeview elementary schools attended and broke ground.

“The next few years are going to be very exciting for Ludington Area Schools,” Superintendent Jason Kennedy said of the upcoming school improvements. “We are deeply grateful to the community for its support of this exciting improvement to our schools. Officially kicking off the project with this groundbreaking ceremony that involves our students, families, and staff should be a lot of fun, and will get everyone even more excited about the improvements to come.”

In total, the projects will focus on creating safe and modern schools and include a new elementary school, major renovations and additions to the middle school and high school, and improvements to athletic facilities, arts venues, vocational and skilled trades teaching spaces, and transportation, Kennedy said.

Project partners include construction management firm The Christman Company and project architect GMB Architecture and Engineering. For more information about Ludington Area Schools and this project, visit the district’s website at: www.lasd.net.
