Last night the Thompson School District Board of Education voted to wait for more data before beginning the design phase for a new K-8 school in east Loveland. High Plains School has been proposed as an environmentally focused STEM school, emphasizing science, technology, engineering and math.

High Plains School would be located north of Eisenhower Boulevard off Boyd Lake Avenue to serve the growing population.

With board member Denise Montagu absent, colleagues Pam Howard and Lori Hvizda Ward supported approving the design of the school, but Bob Kerrigan, Donna Rice, Bryce Carlson and Carl Langner voted to table the matter for six months.
