Construction crews poured concrete into the gym floor of Wallin Oaks Elementary School on July 1, 2020.
The new school is being built adjacent to Ira Jones Middle School near downtown Plainfield and is expected to open in August 2021.
It will be the 18th District 202 elementary school serving pre-kindergarten through 5th grade students. Adding Wallin Oaks will create enough space district-wide to allow District 202 to offer full-day kindergarten to all eligible District 202 students.
District 202 currently has enough space to offer full-day kindergarten to only 408 students. Students are chosen for full-day kindergarten by lottery.
