Salish Coast Elementary School

With the community's passage of the construction bond in 2016, a new PK-5 elementary school is being built on the existing property at 1637 Grant Street. The present school will stay in use until the new one is completed. This means students will not have to be displaced during the construction.  The opening of the new school is scheduled for the fall of 2018.

New school construction has many steps and is a process of refining details over time. 
In order to provide the Port Townsend community with up to date information, these pages will be updated as information is made available.
