Monta Loma Elementary construction

Summer 2019 
The school will get a new sign in the front, likely by the end of August. This sign, paid for with Measure G funds, will include accurate school and district names. Funding for construction and capital improvements, like school signs, come from restricted funds that can be used only for that purpose. The District used an innovative approach to piggyback on existing, competitive local government contracts to lower the sign cost and expedite installation.


• Expansion of Multi-Use Room
• Classrooms modernization
• Kitchen renovations
• Roofing and renovation of the staff and office areas was completed
Timing: June 2017- August 2018

The expansion of the MUR, including improvements to food service and increased storage capacity, allows for 225 students to eat or 450 students to attend assemblies at one time. 

In summer 2018, crews demolished two pods, remodeled student restrooms, added two portable buildings, and installed a new fire loop.

Classrooms were modernized with technology upgrades, new teaching walls, and fire alarm replacements. All classrooms received new paint, floor tiles, and/or carpeting. Sliding glass doors were replaced with a wall of windows. Some restrooms were upgraded to improve accessibility. The parking lots and student drop off zone also were improved, including an expanded bus loop.

The District has worked very hard over the years to do the work, funded by Measure G, to make facilities improvements and renovations at every school a reality. The results will be amazing. There will be new and updated classrooms, libraries and MURs. However, construction requires extra accommodations. With construction comes frustrations and inconveniences. We appreciate your support and understanding as we take one step closer to improving each of our schools for our students, staff and community.
