Making progress this summer

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

Making progress this summer

Since the first phase of construction began last month, crews are making abundant progress throughout the school this summer. Environmental and demolition work is complete in the classroom renovations on the third floor. In addition, workers have started site excavation for the cafeteria and classroom additions.

In the new welcome center entrance, the foundation for a new elevator has been poured and the walls are being constructed. This new elevator will improve building accessibility for students, families, and visitors.

In the coming weeks, new drywall partitions will be installed in the third floor classrooms, followed by mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection work to prepare for the new systems to be installed.

The East High School building is currently just over 405,000 square feet.
