Voters in Waunakee have some decisions to make on Nov. 2 about space in the community’s schools.
For the second time, Waunakee Community School District is sending a referendum to the community to build a new elementary school and add on to a current one.
Waunakee voters rejected a referendum in April to build the new school and spend the money to operate it. Next week, they’ll be asked again for $23.5 million, but the district said the need for the space is clear.
Waunakee’s Intermediate School has eight lunch hours moving 558 students through one lunch room. The cafeteria also doubles as a classroom in off-hours, just like the hallways, conference rooms and even some closets.
