Traphagen Elementary School

Mount Vernon City School District was renovating Traphagen Elementary School and was not going to be completed in time for the start of the school year. We worked with the client to utilize an existing 2-classroom building to meet their needs. They did not need restrooms so we converted the existing restrooms into storage closets. The NY State Education Department has a requirement that younger students need to have a covered walkway to go from the main school to the modular classroom. VESTA went with a prefabricated aluminum canopy that allowed the students to stay dry all day. After the modular classrooms were removed at the end of the school year, the district elected to keep the canopy in place so their students will stay dry while they wait for their bus in the bus loop.
