Resurrection Construction Update

As plans develop throughout the building process, this page will serve as a resource for up-to-date information and construction updates:

Update: June 10, 2020 – Construction Delayed

As we continue to navigate the uncertain circumstances imposed by COVID-19, parish and school leaders have mutually decided to postpone the groundbreaking for the new Resurrection Elementary school building.

Earlier this year, we shared optimism for the overall project timeline, assuming we would break ground this fall. While we remain committed to building a new Catholic school on Dubuque’s west end, for now, construction will be delayed at least until the spring of 2021.  Considerable progress with architectural design has already been made, and the blueprints are complete. We look forward to the time we are able to move ahead with campaign fundraising.

We will continue to keep you abreast of plans as they develop and make adjustments, as needed, to support the achievement of our vision for a new school at Resurrection. Thank you for your continued prayers and understanding during this challenging time.

Preparations and Planning

As excitement grows for our school renovation project, we want to keep you up-to-date regarding our game plan for classroom accommodations during the construction next school year. There are many details yet to be determined, but we aim to keep the lines of communication open as plans develop.

While we are certainly excited to see things coming together, please be assured that student safety and security will always top the list of our priorities. Both law enforcement and the fire marshal have been involved in planning conversations. Throughout this process, we are committed to maximizing high-quality instruction and minimizing disruption for all students.

We are truly thrilled about what's in store for our campus!
