Happy Valley Elementary
Elementary School – School District 62
Originally constructed in 1912, Happy Valley Elementary School was completely destroyed by fire on October 14, 2005.
In order to expedite construction of a replacement school, School District 62 began design of a replacement school based on the plans from the recently completed Crystalview Elementary. By re-using aspects of the Crystalview Elementary plans, the design process was fast tracked and construction commenced in January, 2006 and was completed in February, 2007.
Westbrook Consulting was retained to design the site servicing for the school and grading of the new sportsfield constructed on the site of the original school. Westbrook was also involved in the conceptual and detailed design of a new staff parking lot and drop off zone that efficiently handles the morning arrival and afternoon pick up periods without traffic tie ups.
The new school was opened on schedule in September of 2008.
