Construction at five of Andover's elementary schools is progressing this summer:
New classrooms, which will double as storm shelters, are nearing completion at Sunflower, Prairie Creek, Robert Martin, Cottonwood and Wheatland elementaries. Meanwhile, construction is progressing on reconfigured entrances at each of those schools to allow for more secure entry.
New playground equipment has been installed at Cottonwood and Sunflower elementary schools, with new equipment at other schools on its way.
Meadowlark is the only elementary school not currently under construction. Construction on a new Meadowlark at 13th and 159th streets is scheduled to begin in spring 2019.
