Holley students are reaping the benefits as final touches are being made to the campus during the last phase of the Capital Project this fall.

The elementary playground was redone and a new Pre-K playground was added to the Elementary School (ES) campus. Students will enjoy using brand new equipment on both playgrounds this fall. New tennis courts were installed at the Middle School/High School while the existing courts were repurposed as tennis, pickleball and basketball courts. This transformation adds outdoor physical education stations for students. When school is not in session, all of these areas are available for community use.

A new bus loop was created in front of the Elementary School, near the District Office entrance, to separate car traffic from school bus traffic. This helps keep students safe as they get on and off the bus at this entrance.

Structural changes have been made to both schools, too. Heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) units were replaced in both buildings. The Elementary School also had windows and doors replaced. The new windows allow more light into classrooms. These upgrades allow the district to use its energy more efficiently and save money on utility costs.

By the end of this project, over $30 million of improvements will have been made to the district facilities, with no impact on taxpayers.

“The entire project has provided the district with one of the finest facilities in Western New York,” said District Superintendent Robert D’Angelo. “I’m pleased to be able to bring these benefits to our students and community. Our long-term goal for the campus is to maintain it as a state-of-the-art school facility and learning environment. We thank the community for their patience and continued support of this project as we’ve completed each phase.”
