We are committed to keeping you informed as we complete construction from the MMSD 2020 facilities referendum.

Construction progress at East High School

With students and staff returning to East High School earlier this month, construction crews continue working in designated areas to maintain the project schedule and limit disruption to daily school activities.

Inside the school, the current phase of classroom renovations on the west second floor is nearly complete, and the team is preparing to move to the first floor for the next phase of work. Crews are making substantial progress in the lower-level locker room in preparation for opening the first half of the locker room area later this fall.

On the exterior, the steel structure for the new multipurpose room addition is nearly complete. Masonry crews will begin working on the exterior walls of the cafeteria and music area addition in the coming weeks.

Galvanizing is the process of protecting metal from corrosion using zinc. In the galvanization process, a zinc coating is added to the surface of the metal to prevent rusting. By reducing corrosion, the process of galvanization increases the lifespan of the metal.
