Construction Progress Updates


The new brick installation continues on the elementary side of the building with the east side nearly completed.  Masons are busy moving around to the north side (playground side).

Masonry demolition continues on the MS/HS portion of the building and at some higher elevations, including near the front main entrance.  At this time, visitors should use the Board of Education entrance (door #3).  Athletes can enter through the elementary gym entrance.

The roof demolition continues over the HS gymnasium and is now on the east side. 

*Due to the recent weather, roofers may be on-site during some upcoming weekends in an effort to get back on schedule.  We apologize for the inconvenience to our neighbors.

Access to the building will be available through the Board of Education Office.  Just a general reminder that the EL/MS/HS offices are closed for the summer. 

(Please Note:  The back portion of the walking path and basketball court on the back side of the building will not be open due to construction equipment and supplies.)
