Referendum


L-C Referendum main entrance
Visitors to the combined entrance of the renovated high school and brand-new middle school immediately know where they are.

A large Spartan head logo, along with the words, “Luxemburg-Casco, Home of the Spartans,” welcomes those stepping into the building’s vestibule. “LC” also has been burnished into the polished concrete floor. Graphics also clearly differentiate the administrative offices of the High School and Middle School.

“The new Middle School, along with the remodeled areas of the High School, really are turning out as beautiful as we had imagined when the referendum projects first got underway,” says L-C District Superintendent Glenn Schlender. “We are excited to deliver what the community asked for years ago. All of the staff also seem to be excited about the new facilities.”

Schlender indicated that the district expects to hold an Open House event of some sort in September, once the school year is underway, to allow district residents the opportunity to see the new Middle School and renovated areas of the High School.

With the start of the 2020-21 academic year only mere weeks away, final finishes and preparations continue to take place.



L-C Referendum gymnasium dedication eventThe comments were varied, but community reaction was overwhelmingly positive at the dedication event for the new Gymnasium and Wrestling Room of the Luxemburg-Casco School District, held Sunday, Jan. 26.

“This is unreal,” was one thing heard in the crowd. Also, “So nice,” “So impressive,” “It’s been a long time coming,” and “It’s wonderful.”

District administrators and Board of Education members were thanked at the event by local residents for shepherding a process that began in 2015 to a positive resolution. “Many people came up to me at the event and said, ‘Thank you,’” Superintendent Glenn Schlender shared afterward.

Schlender opened the event program with his most important message. “It was great pride that we dedicate our new athletic facilities today, said Schlender. “It is because of you, the Luxemburg-Casco community, that our vision has become a reality. It is indeed a great day to be a Spartan.”

The Luxemburg-Casco School District undertook a long-range facilities plan in the spring of 2015. Following engagement with the local community, two referendum questions were put before voters in April 2018; both passed. Ground was broken in May 2019 on the new Gymnasium and Wrestling Room, which represent a major portion of the $27.8-million referendum projects.

A new Middle School, relocated to Luxemburg from Casco, is the other significant aspect of the projects; construction continues on that building, which is expected to be ready for use in the 2020-21 academic year.
