Construction is underway on a new elementary school on Casper’s north side.

Officials with the state of Wyoming and the Natrona County School District broke ground Wednesday on the $11 million Lincoln Elementary School. When completed, the school will replace the existing North Casper Elementary School.

“It’s an absolute proud day,” District superintendent Steve Hopkins said on Monday. “A lot of people have worked very hard within our community and at the state level, including the legislature, the governor and many who work with him, to make it possible for us to build another wonderful school.”

Officials with the district say the new school should be able to house roughly 380 students and will be nearly 20,000 square feet larger than the current North Casper Elementary.

“That’s about 50 percent more capacity than what we currently have,” North Casper Elementary principal Phillip Hubert said. “I’m extremely excited for this opportunity for our kids, because they’re going to come into a facility that’s first rate and meets all of our technology and square footage needs.”

Hubert says construction on the new school should be completed by April of next year.
