“It’s a very active site happening and, over the next few months, it’s going to get increasingly active with more contractors coming on board. So, it’s good exciting times.”
The new elementary school received the name Anne Roberts Young at a School District meeting in April, named after Fort St. John’s first registered nurse.
The new elementary school is being constructed from across the Fort St. John Hospital at a cost of $31.3 million. Construction started in 2018 and is expected to be complete by the Fall of 2020.
