From Bethesda Beat Project to increase school capacity by 350 students slated for completion in 2020
Preliminary designs for the expansion at Luxmanor Elementary School in Potomac VIA MONTGOMERY COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL
Architects on Thursday showed off preliminary plans for a three-story expansion at Luxmanor Elementary School in Potomac.
The project will increase the school’s size by about 20,000 square feet and raise its capacity from 411 to 758 students, according to officials. The Montgomery County Board of Education on Thursday signed off on the early plans for the addition and expansion.
The project, which will add 10 classrooms, is currently scheduled for completion in early 2020, according to the school system’s facilities master plan.
