  • Kennedy Formally Opens New Main Entrance Building

    Posted by Neta Miller on 1/9/2020 10:35:00 AM

    The Redwood City School District recently celebrated the official opening of Kennedy Middle School’s new main entrance building. This building is part of the Measure T Bond, passed by voters in 2015, and marks the first major new building construction to be completed under the Bond.

    When the community passed Measure T, they said yes to required repairs and upgrades for 21st Century learning in the District, where the majority of sites are over 50 years old, and three sites are more than 80 years old. The Facilities Master Plan, last updated in the 2014-15 school year, identified and prioritized several updates and repairs across the District, and the Bond’s mission is to bring these to life, as the new main entrance building has been brought to life.

    The new space will be the home of the administration office and the Family Center. The building’s location and design will provide a welcome and safe entrance for students, staff, parents, and visitors every day. Local families will continue to enjoy access to the many services Kennedy Middle School provides in the Family Center in the upgraded space.

    Speaking to the gathered crowd, RCSD Superintendent Dr. John Baker said “Days like today are the reason why we work so hard in the Redwood City School District, when we see results for our students. We could not have done this without the support of the community. Thanks to our community, our students, our teachers, and our staff will benefit from the new improved and safe learning spaces.” Gathered Kennedy Middle School students made the opening official with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

    The RCSD community will continue to see results from the Measure T Bond for the community’s children, with all school sites seeing upgrades and modernization in learning spaces.

    The Kennedy Administration Building and Parking Lot project is currently under construction, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

     

    The scope of work currently under construction includes:

    • New administration building and family center
    • Relocate existing underground utilities
    • Science labs
    • Modernize existing classrooms
    • Update storm water drainage system
    • New kitchen equipment
    • New parking lot and concrete walkways
    • New drop-off/bus loop area
    • Slurry coat and stripe existing paving
    • Updated safety locks for all classroom doors
    • Emergency response and wayfinding signage
    • Safety fencing and decorative gate
    • Security camera installation
    • Classroom technology package (includes Redcat Access classroom voice enhancement system and flat screen TVs on motorized, adjustable carts)

    All scope is subject to change.

     

    Kennedy will additionally complete an Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations project. The EV Charging Stations design is currently 50% complete.

     

    The Bond Team and the District are excited to see the progress being made to transform our schools into 21st century learning environments, and the progress and effect this Bond will have on our community.
