ST. CLOUD, MN (KNSI) - The St. Cloud School Board has given the green light for five-point-six million dollars in construction projects.
Madison Elementary will be expanded to ease overcrowding, and North and South junior high schools will be remodeled. Work on the Madison expansion is expected to begin this fall and last through the upcoming school year. The remodeling of the junior high schools won't take place until next summer.
The Madison Elementary work will cost two-point-two million dollars. As many as nine new classrooms and two bathrooms will be added on to the existing structure. The junior high remodeling projects will cost just under three-and-a-half million dollars.
Media centers in both schools will be remodeled to create more classroom space, and the gymnasiums will be remodeled.
St. Cloud police say more than a thousand dollars was stolen in a burglary in the one-thousand block of 36th Avenue North. Officers were called Thursday afternoon, and found someone entered the unlocked residence from the rear of the home sometime between one pm and four pm and took the money. There were no eyewitnesses, and no arrests have been made.
