Three Rivers Elementary ready to serve 800 students
Three Rivers Elementary School is the Pasco School District’s 16th elementary school.
The two-story school features 72,842 square feet of space at 3901 Road 84 Pasco, north of Chiawana High School.
It also is home to a new inclusive playground that will ensure all students can engage in playground activities. It will be the first inclusive playground at an elementary school in the state and will be designated as a national demonstration site for the state of Washington, according to the school district.
The new school uses the same design as Marie Curie STEM Elementary School, which saved the district money in the design process.
The school is expected to serve about 800 students.
The $27.3 million school is part of the district’s 2017 $99.5 million bond, which also will pay for more new schools, safety and security improvements, roof replacements, land purchases for future schools sites and other building improvements.
Fowler Construction of Richland was the general contractor. Design West Architects of Kennewick was the architect.
