Seven Locks Elementary School Update



Plans remain on track for building a new school on the current site for Seven Locks Elementary at the intersection of Seven Locks Road and Bradley Boulevard. Residents are invited to participate in the meetings to review plans for the new school held by the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS). The schedule for the meetings, to be held in the multi-purpose room of the school, is as follows:

  • Sept. 25, 7 PM
  • Oct. 14, 3:30 PM
  • Nov. 18, 3:30 PM
  • Dec. 9, 7 PM

The architectural drawings displayed at the first meeting reflect a compact two-story building for about 400 students, featuring many environmental innovations and a large gymnasium. Plans also reflect the priority underscored by the community for enhancing safety at the busy Seven Locks/Bradley intersection and for retaining the popular recreation area surrounding the school. The community is particularly encouraged to attend the final meeting in December. If all proceeds as planned, construction will begin in the summer of 2010 and the new school will open in January 2012.
