January Construction Update: Big milestones coming up in 2020
With the start of 2020, the Upper Arlington community will see the first of several significant milestones this year as we begin to open new and renovated learning spaces in the first phase of the facilities master plan. This will begin at Tremont Elementary School in mid-February, with the opening of the new kindergarten and media center addition and the renovated second floor classrooms.
All five projects underway in the first phase of the Upper Arlington Schools facilities master plan remain on schedule and on budget, and contractors continue to make great progress.

Contractors are working quickly on the final preparations for the new kindergarten and media center addition and the renovated second floor classrooms. Students and staff will be welcomed into these new learning spaces after the Presidents Day holiday.

The slab on grade and on deck are completed for the classroom addition, and structural steel work continues.
