Wellington Elementary School in Flower Mound will receive an estimated $9.65 million in improvements to its building and playground.

Lewisville ISD board of trustees members approved the expenses at the April 12 meeting.


Construction of a new playground will begin soon and is scheduled to be complete before the start of the 2021-22 school year. Updates to the school building will take place this summer and next. The projects were included in the 2017 bond referendum. Wellington is located at 3900 Kenwood Drive in Flower Mound.

The same bond program will pay for four-year turf replacement this summer at Flower Mound, Hebron and The Colony high schools. The total cost for turf replacement is estimated to be $3.4 million, according to documents from the April 12 meeting.
