THREE RIVERS – A handful of voters approved the Three Rivers school district $14.22 million bond election on Saturday.

The bond issue had 104 voters for and 16 against.

“We feel like it’s good for the community, good for the kids,” said Superintendent Kenneth Rohrbach.

The bond will fund the construction of a new elementary school.

The current elementary school was shown to be deteriorating with structural problems in the buildings and bathrooms.

And the size of the current classrooms did not meet state standards any longer.

Rohrbach said an elementary planning committee figured out the needs for an elementary school and came up with a wish list.

Included on that list is a new gym and cafetorium.

A new school would have 60,200 square feet and accommodate 460 students for grades pre-K through sixth grade.

Current enrollment at the elementary school is 350, but sixth-graders are currently attending classes at the middle school.
