This year, the first day of school is going to be moving day as well for three Garden Grove Unified School District elementary schools.
At present, all the summer refurbishing and conduit replacement has less than three weeks to finish up.
For Northcutt Elementary, the finishing touches cannot come soon enough as it makes way to absorb Monroe Elementary, adding 330 students to the original enrollment of 439.
“Right now, the construction crews are working weekends to make the deadline,” said Stuart Moe, director of facilities.
Northcutt elementary, located at 11303 Sandstone Ave. in Fountain Valley, is undergoing a massive overhaul of its conduit piping.
While most schools will just be rotating classrooms, three more school will be hosts as some locations undergo growing pains.
Other elementary schools that are “adopting” for the school year are Patton Elementary School, regular enrollment of 954, which will take on Garden Park Elementary, enrollment of 245, to bring the total enrollment at the Patton school site to 1,299. Chapman Hettinga School for adult education will relocate to Lincoln Educational Center until fall 2013.
Bell Intermediate’s 642 students will relocate to Chapman Hettinga for the 2012-2013 school year.
All those schools are located in Garden Grove.
