Project Overview

In November 2018, Northfield-area voters overwhelmingly approved a bond referendum to provide funding to improve and enhance elementary and early childhood buildings in the District to create suitable, secure learning environments where our children can thrive.

Thank you, Northfield, for your partnership in empowering learners to reach their full potential.



We’re constructing a new elementary school and creating spaces that better support learners. Renovations at Sibley and Bridgewater will serve our growing student body and provide learning spaces where they can thrive.

Early Childhood

With the construction of a new elementary school, we’ll re-purpose the current Greenvale Park Elementary School to create an early childhood center that will increase the availability of early childhood and preschool programs.



We’re implementing common sense security measures across the District that offer safe, welcoming environments for all of our learners.


Below are general timelines for the work approved by voters in November 2018. More detailed information about the construction of Northfield’s new Greenvale Park Elementary and building improvement projects can be found in the “Construction Updates” news feed above.
