Surprises delay Sevastopol school project's full completion

Your ancestors may have played a role in why Sevastopol students and staff’s first day of class may be at a school that is still a work in progress. Sevastopol School District Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says the majority of the work is done for the new addition that was approved as a part of the $25.1 million referendum in 2018. Part of that price tag included removing the original 1924 section of the building, which played the role of a time capsule earlier this summer. Crews discovered a large pile of fieldstones where the foundation of the building once stood. Luedtke says discovering the dumping ground for farmers close to 100 years ago was a surprise.

As a result, removing the fieldstones from the site will cause the front parking lot to not be finished by the beginning of the school year. Staff will be asked to park at a nearby church until work can be completed. The project also included a renovation of parts of the 1965 addition, which will still have to wait a few weeks for all of its flooring to arrive and be installed.  Sevastopol School District will host a ribbon-cutting and open house for the new addition on Sunday, August 22nd from 2 to 4 p.m. The first day of school is still scheduled for September 7th.
