Ribbon cutting to celebration completion of fencing project

On Thursday, April 28, the Escon­dido Union School District (EUSD) will celebrate the completion of fenc­ing projects funded through the Prop. E Bond Program at a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in the parking lot at Hidden Valley Middle School, 2700 Reed Rd. The ceremony will begin promptly at 3:30 p.m.

The ribbon-cutting event attendees will include EUSD Board Members, officials from the City of Escondido, representatives from the Proposition E Independent Citizens Oversight Com­mittee, and EUSD students, parents, and staff.

Installing and/or enhancing fencing at LR Green, Lincoln, and Oak Hill Elementary, and Hidden Valley Middle Schools is amongst the Phase I priori­ties of the Proposition E Program, fo­cused on increasing safety and security on four EUSD school campuses.

The fencing includes seven or eight foot high, decorated metal fences with pickets at the front of the school, with a combination of eight-foot high chain link fences around the remainder of the campuses. The final of the four fenc­ing projects, at LR Green Elementary School, is due to be completed later this spring.

“Student safety and security is the first priority of our programs funded through Proposition E. We are excited to share this completed Prop. E fenc­ing project with our community,” said Russell Decker, EUSD Director of Fa­cilities.

Prop. E Bond Program funding, a to­tal of $182.1 million dollars approved by residents of Escondido in November 2014, is to be used to enhance school safety and campus security, modernize school facilities, and update technology infrastructure at schools throughout the Escondido Union School District.
