The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District will host a groundbreaking ceremony on May 5 to celebrate the commencement of Bond 2020 work at Lee’s Summit High School earlier this year.

Following 82.2% of voters approving the district’s $224 million no tax rate increase bond issue on June 2, 2020, multiple projects to benefit the LSR7 school community are well underway.

In collaboration with partners Gould Evans and JE Dunn Construction, the district has developed plans to transform the Lee’s Summit High School campus by the start of the 2023-24 school year.

And on Wednesday, LSR7 will celebrate progress as promised for the bond project, which includes major additions connecting the campus with future-ready learning spaces, a new media center, comprehensive interior renovations and more at the district’s original high school. Project plans also call for a new LSHS baseball and softball complex at the site of the district’s new middle school on SE Bailey Road.

The groundbreaking ceremony is at 4:30 p.m. at Lee’s Summit High School, 400 SW Blue Parkway. Guests are asked to park on the south side of the high school or in the King’s Church parking lot on the west side of campus. The ceremony will be held outside the LSHS “Tiger Head” on the southwest corner of campus.
