June 2018

The Issaquah School District has acquired approximately 13 acres located at 4305-4353 Issaquah Pine Lake Road SE in the City of Sammamish. This land, known as the “Volpe Property,” is heavily impacted by wetlands and critical areas and therefore not fully developable. However, the District has determined that the useable area is sufficient for a compact footprint elementary school similar to Clark Elementary.

Site planning and building design are underway with the intention of beginning construction in 2019. The new elementary school is scheduled to open in September 2020. Residents may notice activity sooner on the property as the geotechnical soils analysis work is conducted in the coming weeks.

The District is working to complete survey, geotech and traffic studies.  Work is proceeding with initial schematic design work pending finished survey drawings that include detailed topographic information and tree locations.
