So far, construction on the $3.5 million renovation and expansion project at Lake Park-Audubon Elementary School in Audubon has proceeded with minimal disruption to students and staff.


"It couldn't have gone any better as far as disruption (of classes)," said LP-A Superintendent Dale Hogie on Thursday. "The staff has been very accepting of the construction process."

The construction crews have also been very willing to work around class schedules and school activities.
