Construction is happening!

The District’s construction manager, Findorff, started the first phase of construction at La Follette High School.

There’s quite a bit of activity happening outside the building. The soil onsite is being prepped for the School’s new athletic addition, where excavation will start after Memorial Day.

Construction crews have been working onsite after hours to avoid school traffic during the day. This helps limit disruptions to school activities and ensures safety for students and staff. Demolition has started with the removal of ceiling tiles and existing piping.

Construction ready to begin at La Follette

One inch of rain can penetrate the soil between 6-15 inches deep and can take up to three days for the ground to completely dry.
