These projects come after area residents approved a $44.1 million plan for expanded educational spaces and infrastructure upgrades at Minnehaha Elementary and William Kelley Schools. Updates include security improvements, electrical systems, plumbing, and educational technology. Both schools will be renovated to replace flooring, ceilings, furniture, and finishes.

Superintendent Jay Belcastro said, “We are very excited to break ground on our building renovations. Our staff and students will teach and learn in 21st-century classrooms. We are very thankful for the support of the Silver Bay and Two Harbors communities as well as the support from Senator Haushchild and the IRRRB for securing additional funding.”
