Getting Ready for Summer

Getting Ready for Summer

While students and faculty are preparing for summer break, the construction trades are preparing for their bigsummer push. Crews will be taking over several new areas for construction in the coming months, as well as turning over the new health sciences, fashion and interior design, childcare, and kitchen/life skills classrooms for the La Follette community, staff and students to enjoy!

Additionally, work is continuing in the new gymnasium and weight room addition. The hardwood flooring is nearly complete with final sealing and striping starting next week. Work in the new locker room is underway as mechanical, electrical and plumbing hook ups are installed. Lastly, the new front addition has foundations underway.

Updates on Current and Upcoming Work

  • Starting structural steel in the new front addition
  • Installing mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems underground in the locker rooms
  • Beginning construction in the former spectator gym at the end of May

DID YOU KNOW? Once complete, the former spectator gym will be home to an orchestra room, choir room, STEAM lab, and a flex space. This area will also have some small group instruction (SGI) rooms as well as music practice rooms.
