Michael Inskeep Elementary School

  • Construction has begun on Michael Inskeep Elementary School, the new school in north Cold Springs! It's slated to open its doors in August, 2021. 

    Michael Inskeep Elementary School will help to relieve overcrowding at elementary and middle schools in the North Valleys, including Gomes and Silver Lake elementaries - the district's most overcrowded elementary schools. 

    The new school, being constructed by Q&D Construction, will follow the same design as the recently constructed elementary schools - Nick Poulakidas Elementary and John Bohach Elementary. 

    Join us on Wed. July 22 for a groundbreaking to celebrate this new school! Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will be hosting two identical ceremonies, each capped at 50 guests. RSVP required. Click here for more info and to RSVP.
