Moreland Announces New Perimeter Fencing Project

MMS Fence
Perimeter fencing installed at all Moreland schools will be similar to that at Moreland Middle School (above) and Easterbrook Discovery School (below).
 
SAN JOSE, CA, May 20, 2024: The Moreland School District Board of Trustees recently approved a new district-wide fencing project to enhance the safety and security of Moreland students and staff. 
 
The project includes new picket-style perimeter fencing at all seven Moreland School District school sites: Anderson, Baker, Country Lane, and Payne Elementary Schools; Easterbrook Discovery and Latimer Schools; and Moreland Middle School. The fence will allow for a single entrance for all visitors at each site’s main office during school hours. 
 
The construction will begin on June 10 and occur two schools at a time in the following order:
  • Baker and Moreland Middle
  • Latimer and Payne
  • Anderson and Country Lane
  • Easterbrook Discovery School
The first phase of the project plans to run June 10 through August 12, focusing construction on the front entrance and student drop-off areas during summer break. The second phase of construction is planned for August 13 through November 30, focusing on the remaining perimeter fencing around each site. Latimer School will also get a new arch entry monument to match the existing structures at Baker and Payne.
 
"We are beyond grateful to the community for investing in the safety and security of our students and staff," said Superintendent Dr. Clover Codd. “We remain dedicated to responsibly managing the resources entrusted to us as we move forward with these important upgrades.”
 
The safety enhancement project is fully funded from Measure M, a facilities and construction bond measure that was passed in March 2020 by Santa Clara County voters. The funds are allocated for needed facilities repairs, upgrades for safety and security systems and improvements to all seven Moreland School District school sites.
