The Home Stretch of Summer Work

With school starting up in just over a week, the summer phase of construction work at East High School is winding down. Crews have worked diligently over the past 10 weeks to ensure the school is ready for the fall semester.

Finishes are being installed throughout the newly renovated cafeteria, welcome center, and music classroom spaces, including flooring, interior glass, wood paneling, and final paint touch-ups.

Outside the school, the newly re-paved parking lot is being striped this week, with final landscaping set to be installed next week. The parking lot is scheduled to be open again at the start of the new school year.
