Ashland Public Breaks Ground on Addition

On June 19th, a groundbreaking ceremony was held at Ashland Public School for construction on the school’s updated kitchen. Leading the event was McGough Construction, a Minneapolis based construction firm with regional headquarters in Rapid City, which will be building the addition. The ground breaking ceremony featured a free lunch that was enjoyed by summer school students, Ashland Public staff and faculty, and local press.

The addition is the first phase of the school’s kitchen expansion, according to Ashland Public Superintendent Sarah Shannon. This phase will consist of the building shell for the expanded kitchen, as well as electrical and plumbing. The school’s walk in cooler will also be moved from its current location into the new addition.

Phase II of the project will complete the project, expanding the school’s limited kitchen space. The first phase of the project is expected to be completed by August of this year.

Funding for the project came about through ESSER funds to the tune of $800,000. ESSER funds are money granted to schools through a series of funds from Congress in 2020 and 2021.
