The Oregon School Board had a chance to conduct a walking tour of the new K-6 elementary school under construction in the booming Terravessa development in Fitchburg on Monday, April 6. The project started with a groundbreaking June 6, 2019, and has continued without disruption through the winter season, and now the coronavirus pandemic.

The school at 4848 Brassica Road, is expected to open for classes on Monday, Sept. 1.
