Dear Fort Lewis Mesa Families,

This summer, we are planning a fairly large asbestos abatement project where two sections of the building will be addressed.  Although these sections will be closed off with warning signs and access to those areas of the building will be restricted to abatement contractors until the work is complete, the entire building will be closed to the public and staff until the abatement has been completed.We have been told this part of the work should be completed by July 3rd.

Dear Fort Lewis Mesa Families,

Please remember we spend each morning as well as a daily recesses, outside as long as the temperature is above 20 degrees. We still have a lot of snow on the ground and students are not allowed to pay in the snow unless they have on snow boots. We do clear off the basketball court to allow for students that do not have snow boots a snow free area to play on.
