Community Meeting About the Future of Two Lehigh Acres Schools

The School District of Lee County is holding a community meeting on Tuesday, March 30th about the future of Veterans Park Academy for the Arts and the soon to be former campus of Lehigh Acres Middle School. The meeting will be in the Star Café at Veterans Park Academy for the Arts from 6 to 8 p.m.

Current students at Lehigh Acres Middle School on Arthur Avenue will move to the new Lehigh Acres Middle School on Sunrise Blvd. when it opens in August of 2021. The vacated campus will be renovated for future use.

LAMS and Veterans Park share a common border so among the options for their future use is creating one large kindergarten through 8th grade campus. Another option is to create two separate schools. The proposals under consideration will be presented at the community meeting with the chance for questions, answers and feedback. The input of current and future students and the Lehigh Acres community is critical to the success of this project.

Veterans Park Academy of the Arts is located at 49 Homestead Rd. South in Lehigh Acres. Due to COVID-19 protocols social distancing and masks will be required at the meeting.
