Harvey Dunn's Expansion Finished

August 13, 2012, 5:03 PM by Nicole Winters

Harvey Dunn's Expansion Finished
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The start of school is just one week away for the Sioux Falls School District. This year, students at Harvey Dunn will notice a lot more classrooms and a lot more kids with a new expansion.

There's still some unpacking to do, but Head Start Health Coordinator Lacey Deranleau is getting settled into her new office and new school.

"The space is really, really nice; the building is really nice," Deranleau said.

Along with new classrooms and bathrooms, the Health office is now located in Harvey Dunn's new addition.  It’s a big transformation for an area of the school that was under construction just two months ago.

"We were thankful that the construction was done early. That allowed the staff to get into their rooms a little early so they could get unpacked and ready to go," Harvey Dunn Principal Teresa Boysen said.

The 17,000 square-foot addition houses 12 new classrooms for first grade, Early childhood education and Head Start.

"This is one of the biggest sites.  It will be really convenient to have families and all of the children here at one location instead of being spread out," Deranleau said.

The addition isn't just classrooms and business. The younger kids are also getting new toys outside.

"Those kids are going to love to see that next week too," Boysen said.

There will be plenty of students to try out the new play structure because the addition is adding quite a bit to the population.

"We are about 200 students larger than last year," Boysen said.

But until the kids come through the doors, Deranleau and other staff members are working to get the new space up and running.

"It will be nice when we're all done and moved in," Deranleau said.

The Harvey Dunn expansion was one of the district's largest projects to be completed this summer. It cost about $1.7 million.
