    Update August 2018:

    This school year will be a busy one with the beginning work on our facility upgrades.  We have just received preliminary estimates on timelines from our architects. Bid announcements will be in mid-September and bid awards in mid-October.  We will begin to see projects starting in late November. At this point, the plan for the elementary is to remodel 1 pod (5 classrooms) and bathroom at a time. During the process, classrooms will be temporarily assigned to alternative rooms. The office and library will be completed in the summer of 2019 with final completion of the entire building to be done by August 2020.  At the Junior High/High School the preliminary plan for Phase I is to begin the secured entrance + WHS offices (complete by July '19) + new WHS classrooms & JH classrooms + weight room addition + competition gym (complete by Nov '19) + McGaffin Field (complete by Fall '19).  Phase 2 will include a remodel of 3 rooms at a time at WHS and 4-5 at JH (complete by May '20). Phase 3 is the work on hallways and main corridors (complete by Fall '20). As with any construction project, timelines will change and unexpected things will happen.  However, we are all very anxious to get the process started. We are also very thankful for the community’s support and passage of the General Obligation Bond and look forward to improved safety, additional classrooms, and modernization of our facilities.
