Middle School Construction Project Update
Here is an update on the construction of the expansion and renovation project at Southern Boone Middle School. With the new addition, the majority of the new aluminum windows have been installed and several of the exterior door frames have been set. Several of the new classrooms have had cabinetry installed. Carpet has been installed in several of the new office rooms. Next week, the science rooms' cabinetry is scheduled to arrive. Over the next couple of weeks, the sheetrock finishing and painting should be completed.

In the north building, the floor tile has been installed in the hallways. The electricians have installed the new speakers and new fire alarm system. Next week, Prost Builders will start installing the new classroom doors. In the south building, the flooring subcontractor has a majority of the new VCT (vinyl composite tile) installed in the classrooms. The school district has started sealing and waxing the new flooring in the 1988 addition (classrooms between the old central office and annex area). The painter is toughly 75% complete in the south building. The electricians have installed roughly 60% of the new classroom lights. Prost Builders are installing classroom cabinetry and they are about 50% complete.

Voters in the Southern Boone School District approved the $7.7 million bond issue in April 2021 for the middle school construction project. The project will connect the two buildings with the new addition, which consists of a new main office, science labs, library and vocational area. The project also includes converting the current office and library into additional classrooms, and other much-needed improvements to the middle school.

Summer School Walking School Bus Program
The Summer 2022 Ashland Walking School Bus routes are getting ready to
roll. A Walking School Bus (WSB) is a group of children who walk to school
together under the supervision of adult leaders (eg. a parent/grandparent or
community member). The program promotes good health, a cleaner environment, reduced traffic around school, and a ready-to-learn attitude
for the school day.

The Walking School Bus currently has two “bus stops,” or starting points:
  • Ashland Childcare Center Route: the intersection of Liberty Lane and Douglas Drive. Adult supervision begins at 7:15 AM; children start walking to school at 7:30. Kids can arrive any time between 7:15 AM and 7:30 AM.
  • Ashland Public Library Parking Lot Route: Adult supervision begins at 7:15 AM; children start walking to school at 7:30. Kids can arrive any time between 7:15 AM and 7:30 AM.
Complete the registration form and bring it to your Walking School Bus starting point the first day your child walks. Walk leaders will have extra registration forms. Parents can register children on-site throughout the program. Kids can
always join us along the route if we pass by your house.

To be a WSB adult volunteer walker, please contact Joan Seidel at
