Mequon-Thiensville School District

Referendum Project

On April 7, 2020, voters in the Mequon-Thiensville School District approved a $55.7 million referendum to address facility needs across the Mequon-Thiensville School District. After a 12-month planning and design phase, construction is now underway at our elementary and middle schools!

Project Next Steps

An immense amount of work has taken place at all school buildings to move toward our goal of project completion in summer 2022. The full project is still on time to be completely finished by the end of summer 2022, and we remain on budget.

With some work still ongoing at the elementary and middle schools, please know that the district, along with our partner, Hunzinger Construction Company, are committed to a “School First, Construction Second” approach, ensuring that there is minimal disruption to our learning environments throughout the construction process. As they have throughout this past spring and summer, Hunzinger will work closely with district and building administrators to uphold a high standard of safety and the integrity of our students’ educational experience while construction is underway.

While there have been some intermittent delays due to industry shortages and supply-chain demands and inclement weather, the project remains on schedule. As the school year begins and construction continues, we ask that families, staff members, and visitors please follow all posted signs at each school to keep everyone safe.
