Summer Construction About to Begin

With only 4 days to go in the school year, the construction work is increasing in and around the middle and high schools.  Over the next week, the work in front the school will begin.  This means the parking lot and softball field as we know them will be torn up and preparations for the new parking lot will begin.  This will create difficulty in reaching the administration office and offices at both the high school and middle school.  If you need to conduct business in these offices, please call ahead for instructions on how you can get to the office you need (841-8100).

The access road to Michigan Avenue is progressing well.  The permanent culvert has been installed in the creek between the AYSO field and the Maxson property.  This is a very large culvert that should manage the creek's flow easily.  Check out the pictures to see the giant culvert.  The work on the auxiliary parking lot near the tennis courts should begin the week of June 11th.  At that time, the soccer hill will be excavated to begin forming the road passing north of the administration office.  If all goes well, we could asphalt being laid on the auxiliary parking lot and access road in early July.

Sodding the football field has been pushed back to next week.  As for the softball and baseball fields, the seeding has been delayed as further irrigation may be installed to provide coverage of the green space at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Dearing Road.

The roof joists are installed on the new gym and the first part of the roof decking is being installed.  The brick exterior is progressing quickly around the gym, fitness center and new classrooms.  

Inside the high school, the mechanical work continues in unoccupied spaces.  Pipes, duct work and wiring are being run throughout the existing and new structure.  The amount of wire and pipes that have already been installed is impressive.  

Stay Tuned.......
