Lincoln City families and their elementary school children were treated to a tour of their newly expanded Oceanlake Elementary School recently. The expansion of the half-century old school added 25,000 square feet adding the convenience of not having to combine lunch, gym and other activities going on in the same location. New playground equipment, gymnasium facilities and permanent classrooms will make getting an education more convenient if not more fun for kids attending Oceanlake. A similar story is going on at other schools around the county thanks to a voter-passed school bond that was aimed at getting rid of aging portable classrooms that required students to race between buildings in the pouring rain and the district suffering through high utility bills just to keep the classrooms warm.
