The Roundup Public Schools along with Snowy Mountain Development applied for a grant to do a feasibility study for Central Elementary with the hope of finding a good use for the Sandstone building that would not require the use of taxpayer dollars. The first phase of that study has been completed by Randy Hafer of High Plains Architects out of Billings. It is important to understand that this is only phase one and nothing has truly been decided, but there have been many good ideas shared so far. The feasibility study is available for review under important links on our school website at www.roundup.k12.mt.us, or Central School Feasibility Study.
