The Surrey Board of Education has received new sketch plans for Snokomish Elementary and an addition at Semiahmoo Trail Elementary, both of which are in the design phase. The current plans for Snokomish Elementary include space for 655 seats, a daycare space, and the incorporation of First Peoples principles of learning and energy efficiency. The facility design would preserve the mature trees on the site. The Semiahmoo Trail Elementary addition includes 10 classrooms, which will increase the school’s capacity to 540 students, and will include breakout spaces, teaching stairs, and meeting rooms. The Snokomish Elementary school is scheduled to open in Spring 2025, while the new addition at Semiahmoo Trail Elementary is scheduled to open in Fall 2024.
