Digital Originals

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Crews have begun Phase 3 of the Fallon Park Elementary School renovation.

The ground was broken on this entire project in early 2018. Phase 1 & 2 were completed, adding a two-story wing with administration offices, a new cafeteria, and 13 additional classrooms, making for 26 classrooms in all.

This newest project when completed will include a new bus loop, convert the old cafeteria into a music and art center, and renovate the existing gym. Fallon Park Elementary educates just over 600 students, making it one of the largest elementary schools in the city. Justin McLeod of Roanoke City Public Schools tells us the current project is on schedule and should be completed by the end of this summer.

Fallon Park Elementary holds many memories for a lot of area residents, including two former classmates — Robert and Tiffany Brogdon — who heard about the demolition through social media and just had to come to see where their love story started. Robert and Tiffany Brogdon.

The final project Phase 4 will incorporate Carilion Clinic and Delta Dental to form an onsite clinic that will provide dental and health needs for Fallon Park Elementary students and their immediate families. Roanoke City Public Schools tells us this final project will not impact the daily operation of the school in any way.
