2021 construction date set for new Resurrection Elementary School in Dubuque

Plans to build a new Resurrection Elementary School in Dubuque are getting back on track, after a pause due to the pandemic. Officials from Church of the Resurrection and Holy Family Catholic Schools recently announced that the project is moving forward again after construction and fundraising plans were delayed earlier this year due to COVID-19. Officials plan to demolish a wing of the current school and build a three-story building in its place to serve preschool through fifth-grade students. However, officials decided not to go forward with plans to offer infant day care at the site and will instead use the space for parish activities, which was part of church officials’ original plans, according to a press released. Officials said they hope to break ground on the project this spring, pending funding approval from the Archdiocese of Dubuque.
