Community members got a chance to tour the improved Kennedy and Woodview elementary schools on Tuesday during the Grafton School District’s rededication ceremonies.

Classroom additions and upgrades were made to each school as part of the district’s $39.9 million facilities project.

Supt. Jeff Nelson said there are a few punch list items remaining at the elementary schools but those projects should be completed by the end of the month.

Meanwhile, the demolition of Grafton Elementary School began last week and should be done by next month. The site will be turned into a parking lot.

Grafton High School will hold its rededication ceremony Friday, Sept. 28, during homecoming festivities. Nelson said remodeling at the school should be finished by the end of December.

The high school will receive a temporary pool boiler, after the pool was disconnected from the school’s heating system during construction. Nelson  said student-athletes can begin using the pool by Monday.
