Trailer Classrooms Arrive at Washington-Lee

Five large relocatable classroom trailers received a police escort up Washington Boulevard this morning, en route to Washington-Lee High School.

The trailers are being installed in a parking lot behind the Arlington Public Schools administration building. They will be used as classrooms for Washington-Lee students, starting this fall.

Crews removed trees from the parking lot yesterday in preparation for the arrival of the classrooms. School spokesman Frank Bellavia said he the trees will be replanted elsewhere, with the assistance of the Arlington County arborist.

Washington-Lee’s current building, which first opened in 2008, has a capacity of 1,854 students. Enrollment was projected to reach 1,913 in 2011, with the student population burgeoning to 2,585 by 2016.
