    Currently, the Multi-Purpose Building at Laurel Elementary School serves as a makeshift kitchen serving pre-packaged food delivered to the school.

    The scope of this project is to construct a fully equipped Finishing Kitchen building addition to the Multi-Purpose Building. The service line will include a hot meal cooked in the new Finishing Kitchen, a self-service salad bar, and chilled milk.

    This project also includes seismic retrofit of the multi-purpose room and acoustical treatment.
