Little Elm High School: Student-Ready for the First Day

Reception Area

Students will notice the change immediately as they enter their newly refreshed campus next Wednesday, August 16. The look is familiar, but there is something exciting about fresh paint and bright clean colors. So much has changed: the main entrance and hallways, the newly renovated library, the classrooms in the new addition, the culinary arts lab, the main hallway, and the existing cafeteria all sporting fresh paint, new floors, and new furniture. 

Main Hallway

On Wednesday, new culinary arts teacher, Kristine Sanborn unpacked brand new heavy-duty kitchen equipment and cooking utensils in the shiney new culinary arts kitchen. The tabLE, the new café adjacent to the culinary kitchen, still has a few aesthetic details that need to be completed. “Isn’t that neat? Our students are going to be serving food to their fellow Lobos in this café,” Sanborn said. 

More than 175 crew members have been working on-site 12 to 14 hours-a-day to make sure the construction areas that impact student learning will be complete for the first day of school.

Our priority is to ensure that students will not be disrupted from learning. An action plan is in place to allow students to walk proudly and easily throughout the building starting on Day One. Two areas will still be under construction and sectioned off so they will only be accessible to construction workers. All student-occupied areas will be safe and unaffected by the continuing work.   


This is an exciting time to be a Lobo! We are thrilled about our new and updated facility which provides us with room to grow. After the start of school, crews will continue adding finishing touches, including graphics, throughout the building. Just as the added graphics in the athletic areas increased school pride last year, we are confident that students, parents, and community members will be #loboproud of our updated spaces.
