Fresh paint, a new library and technology center, a complete sprinkler system, a completely new east wing – paid for with insurance proceeds – transformed the building from a burnt-out shell to a warm and inviting new school.
On Nov. 10, 2009, Marysville K-8 School caught fire. Students and staff followed safety protocols and escaped without injury, taking shelter in the Holgate Library. But their school was rendered unusable. They were relocated to the once-shuttered Rose City Park building, where they have remained since.
Investigators ruled the fire's cause as inconclusive but ruled out the school's electrical system.
Staff worked with community members to determine whether insurance proceeds should be used to partially rebuild Marysville School, or to make improvements to nearby Kellogg School. Based on the community input, the board decided to proceed with the rebuild work at Marysville.
Construction was completed on time and on budget.
