Open house a chance for community to tour Shaler’s new primary school building
Parents and students in the Shaler Area School District got a chance to tour the new Scott Primary School along Scott Avenue on Saturday when the ribbon was cut to mark the building’s construction.
The new school, which was built to replace Rogers Primary School after it was destroyed by fire in April 2015, opened at the start of the 2018-19 school year.
Scott Primary School has room for 375 students in kindergarten through 3rd grade.
The 82,279-square-foot, two-story structure is designed for each grade level to be in its own “neighborhood” of classrooms.
The building also has special education rooms; an accessible playground; additional parking capacity; enhanced security features; and a separate cafeteria, library, gymnasium and STEAM room.
Students who would have attended Rogers after the fire were transferred to Burchfield Primary School.
Students from the former Rogers’ attendance area now go to Scott Primary along with students from Jeffery Primary
