Facility Use

South Washington County Schools encourages the use of school facilities. Space is available for rent in the evenings and on weekends. The Community Education Department reserves space and assures accesibility to schools, community members and organizations.

Cottage Grove, Liberty Ridge and Red Rock elementary schools are the remaining elementary schools to receive secure entryways. HVAC replacement construction will take place at Bailey, Grey Cloud and Middleton elementary schools.

In November 2013, district residents passed a referendum to provide funding to enhance security at all district schools. The security improvements began in the summer of 2014 and should be completed by the end of 2015, which would be a year ahead of schedule. Read more about the security improvements and updates here.
