Scottsbluff Public Schools - Facility Management Mission Statement
“The mission of the Facility Management department of Scottsbluff Public Schools is to create a safe, clean, comfortable, and purposeful learning environment conducive to student achievement and success.”
Message from the Director of Facilities
The Scottsbluff Public Schools Facility Management department is responsible for the maintenance, custodial, and grounds services for the entire Scottsbluff School District. The SBPS Facility Management department supports a total of eight educational facilities in the district, including one early childhood school, five elementary (K-5) schools, one middle school (grades 6-8), and one senior high school (grades 9-12). The department also supports a number of ancillary district facilities such as the District Office, the football stadium, the softball complex, the tennis courts, and Hunts Acres Community Center, as examples. Our department coordinates a number of ancillary services related to facilities and maintenance. Our team also performs a number of “in house” construction projects annually.
About our School Buildings
As a district, we are blessed to have two newer facilities. Our middle and high schools are soon to become the finest 6-12 facilities in the state. Bluffs Middle School, while originally constructed in 1912 as our high school, was completely remodeled in 2009. Scottsbluff High School is currently under construction with completion for both phases slated in early 2018. Click here to find out more on our SHS - Remodel & Renovation Project.
While we are privileged to have our two newer schools, we also recognize that our schools are a treasure. Our elementary schools represents our older treasures and include:
Lincoln Heights Elementary - Built in 1922
Roosevelt Elementary - Built in 1939
Longfellow Elementary - Built in 1940
Westmoor Elementary - Built in 1959
Lake Minatare Elementary - Built in 1962
The average age of our elementary schools may be in excess of 71 years old however, whereas so many school districts nationally are struggling with deteriorating buildings, the older elementary schools in the district are truly gems - standing straight and sturdy - not by accident, not easily, and certainly not unnoticed. The good, although not perfect, condition of these buildings is reflective of many years of thoughtful maintenance and repairs by our Board of Education, our district administration team, and carried out by our facility management team.
