Construction Progress Updates


The front entrance is now open after having the metal roofing installed this week.  Roofers will now focus on installing the metal on the gymnasium.  The roofing demo crew is working to complete the demo on the middle/high school end of the building.  Masons are completing work on the alcove at the north end of the elementary, which will complete the entire north end of the building as well as working on the west side of the elementary, higher elevations and portions of the MS/HS side.  Portions of the elementary will then be cleaned.


Will they be done before school starts? No, this is a two-year process. They will work as long as they can into the fall and start back next spring.

What doors will be available for students at the beginning of the year?  The main entrance (door #1) will be the main entrance for all students to enter, including bus riders, walkers and car riders.  Doors #4, #5, #12, #13 will be closed for the beginning of the year.  We anticipate door #11 (north side of the elementary) being open in time for kindergarten drop-off, however, this is subject to change.

Will the EIFS (walls that aren't brick, such as the main entrance) be the same color? No, it will eventually be painted to match the new brick and roof colors.

(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.)
