Staff and Students to Feel ‘Cooler’ and Safer at Sartell-St. Stephen Schools


SARTELL — The Sartell-St. Stephen School District’s bond referendum is not only going toward building a new high school but also making students and staff feel safe and comfortable at school.

Superintendent Jeff Schwiebert says during the summer, crews worked on updating safety and security features at Pine Meadow Elementary.

“We moved the office, which had been in the center of the building, we moved it to the front entrance. From a security stand point we now have a secure entrance.”


Schwiebert says along with the security updates, Pine Meadow also got a major comfort upgrade.

“[Upgrades included] getting a system designed so that air conditioning is working throughout the building. So from a comfort stand point, a safety stand point, from a learning stand point, we think that building has greatly improved.”


Pine Meadow wasn’t the only school to see some updates. Sartell Middle School also now has a secure entrance and students and staff at Oak Ridge Elementary can now cool off with their new AC system.

Schwiebert says they are happy to have all the upgrades done before the start of the school year and they can’t wait to have students back in class on Tuesday.
