For those without a card, a simple application form should be completed and is available at the district's Public Information Department, 1628 19th St., telephone 766-1062. It will take one week to process.

Dunbar begins 2002-2003 with "new and improved" facilities
The Lubbock Independent School District is dedicated to continually updating its facilities with technology and adding space for new students. Recently, Dunbar Junior High's renovation was completed, adding several science labs and new administrative offices to the science magnet program.

Richard Molina, principal, said he is excited about how the school has been updated. "This is the first major renovation for Dunbar since the school opened in 1958," he said. Other than a workout room being added to the field house, nothing has been added to the main campus in all of its academic years.

Students returning to Dunbar this year will notice new parking areas for teachers and visitors as well as appreciate the six new science labs that were created for the school. The older science labs have been renovated into regular classrooms. The tennis courts and track were resurfaced for the students as well.

The cafeteria was renovated and completed before the 2001-2002 school year began. In the renovation, three firewalls were added that are used as partitions to divide the room for meetings.
Dunbar's construction is just one example of how LISD is committed to keeping up with new technology and updating campuses for the students' benefits.
