Stoney Creek prepares for construction next summer

Comstock Park — Stoney Creek Elementary will receive several upgrades next summer as Comstock Park Public Schools makes plans for the $59.46 million bond passed by voters in May. 

The district’s buildings, except for the Flex Academy, will receive door hardware, rekeying and security upgrades in the spring/summer of 2024. In addition to that work, Stoney Creek Elementary also will receive a security window at the building entry, a food service addition, HVAC systems for all classrooms, roof and envelope (climate control) upgrades, mechanical and plumbing upgrades and LED exterior lighting.

“We are extremely fortunate that the Comstock Park community is supportive of our schools,” Superintendent David Washburn said. “We are looking forward to making building improvements and are very excited to see what the future holds for our district.” 

In addition to the summer construction projects, the district also plans to purchase two new buses.
