Summer construction is coming to a close

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

Summer construction is coming to a close

As summer comes to an end, the academic wings at La Follette High School are finishing up. With crews working long hours to put the finishing touches inside and outside the building, La Follette High School is looking new and fresh. Inside the building, paint and ceiling tile is being installed along with new carpet in classrooms. New ceramic tile and bathroom fixtures have been installed in all bathrooms in the academic wing as well. On the exterior, the new track surface is being installed along with new window frames and glass. Demolition is ongoing in the lower pit near the courtyard, the science wing, and the existing library space. Crews will start framing the walls in these spaces soon.

  • Installing temporary enclosures for student access to the academic wing until the new corridor is complete later this winter

The open-air area underneath the existing second-floor Library Media Center is known as “The Pit.” As part of the 2020 Facilities Referendum, “The Pit” will be transformed into a well-lit instructional space providing experiential learning and improved accessibility. This renovated space will be complete in December 2022.
