Making progress on building renovations and new additions
Renovation work is ongoing throughout the existing building for the English, music, social studies, and applied technology spaces, which will be ready for staff and students returning in the fall. Ceiling and floor demolition continues in other areas of the building to make room for new piping and duct work throughout the existing building and into the new additions.
Construction activity on the new arts and music addition is well underway. Crews recently poured the concrete for the footings and foundation. Once complete, the addition will provide space for band, orchestra, choir, and fine arts support rooms.
