A community meeting to discuss a gymnasium addition for Nichols Hills Elementary School originally scheduled for Tuesday has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Nichols Hills Elementary Cafeteria, 1301 W Wilshire Blvd.

During the meeting, parents, teachers, students and community members can review the final design of the gymnasium addition. The school district has allocated $1.2 million in bond funds for the project.

The school, built in 1937, received a new addition and facility improvements totaling more than $2.4 million from MAPS for Kids funds. The school is designed to accommodate 459 prekindergarten through fifth-grade students.

In 2007, voters in the Oklahoma City Public School District passed a $248.3 million bond issue to further improve public schools across the district. The Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Public Schools Trust manages $114.8 million of those funds, which is allocated to gymnasium, classroom and stadium projects.

People needing a sign language interpreter, language interpreter or disability assistance can call 297-2578 at least 48 hours before the meeting.

The meeting is being coordinated by Hornbeek Blatt Architects and the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area Public Schools Trust Project Office.
