Construction has begun!
Construction crews are working diligently to get ready for a busy summer ahead. On the exterior, excavation crews established the site storage area for construction equipment and trailers. Workers have also started creating temporary access openings for the first phase of classroom renovations on the second and third floors.
Inside the building, temporary walls were built around construction areas to maintain student and staff safety during construction activities.
