Construction kicks off for new Don Haskins school, morphing three campuses into one

The new campus will be named after the late UTEP basketball coach Don Haskins, hosting students from pre-K to eighth grade.

Construction will kick off Friday afternoon for the Borderland’s newest school, which will combine three El Paso ISD schools into one.

Lincoln Middle School in the Upper Valley will be the new home for the roughly 2,000 students currently attending Roberts Elementary, Bond Elementary, and Lincoln Middle School.

The new campus will be named after the late UTEP basketball coach Don Haskins, hosting students from pre-K to eighth grade.

At a cost of $44.2 million, crews are going to renovate the existing classrooms at Lincoln Middle School, which will be used for elementary school grades.

They’re also going to construct new middle school classrooms, a gym, a library, fine-arts classrooms, and new administrative offices.

The money for the consolidation project comes from the 2016 EPISD bond that voters passed.

Friday afternoon, UTEP’s pep band, Paydirt Pete, and coach Haskins’ family will be at Lincoln Middle School to help celebrate the beginning of construction.

The ceremony is expected to begin at 1:30 p.m.

The campus is expected to open in the fall of 2021.
