Families of students attending James Madison Elementary School will have the opportunity to visit their children’s new classroom on Friday.
The Desert Sands Unified School District announced that on Friday, Oct 18, families will be able to see their children’s classrooms at Adams Early Childhood Learning Center in La Quinta.
Bus transportation will be provided from the Madison parking lot to Adams. The first bus will leave Madison at 10:00 am with a return at 10:45. The second will depart Madison at 11:00 am and return at 11:45.
As we’ve previously reported, officials canceled classes at Madison Elementary School this week after structural corrosion was discovered in some buildings on the school campus during recent renovation work. According to details in a letter from the structural engineer, it was explained that “significant rust” was discovered on some columns, possibly from daily power washing.
Madison Elementary students will return to class at Adams ECLC on Oct. 21. The move is expected to last for the “foreseeable future.”
