Yorkson middle school information night Wednesday

Langley School District is holding a Yorkson Creek middle school information night this Wednesday (Jan. 29) at 7 p.m. at Lynn Fripps Elementary.

District staff will be there to answer everyone’s questions, such as what the middle school will be like.

The construction of the middle school is well underway and it is expected to open on time in September 2014.

The $26.2 million school, at 20626 84 Ave. will have a capacity of 750 Grade 6 to 8 students.

Many believe it will be at capacity on the first day it will open. Construction of the middle school is hoped to help offset the overcrowding taking place at Mountain Secondary, which is currently home to more than 16 portables.

Mountain has grown dramatically as a result of the increased population of the Willoughby area.

Lynn Fripps Elementary is located at 21020 83 Avenue.
