A ceremonial groundbreaking for the new Hall Elementary School took place on June 22, with students taking part along with school and city officials.

Preliminary site work for the construction of the new school began in April. The replacement school is being built on the grounds of the current school, located at 23 Orono Road. The new school is slated to open in the fall of 2018.

Portland voters in April 2016 approved $29.7 million in construction costs for a new Hall School in a special citywide municipal election. The state will reimburse all but $1.4 million of the bonded amount. The additional local funding voters approved will enhance the building’s educational and community uses. For example, the local portion will cover such things as the construction of a middle-school-sized gymnasium that can be used by the community, a cafeteria that is large enough to accommodate two 30-minute lunch periods and building security upgrades.
