Construction is progressing very quickly on the five projects underway in the first phase of the facilities master plan as we prepare for winter. Contractors continued to make great progress during October and into November on these projects.

On the high school site, installation of structural steel and masonry walls is continuing throughout the new building. Plumbing and electric contractors are continuing the under-slab rough-in in preparation for the placement of concrete floors in the academic and athletic areas.
The new auditorium and new competition gymnasium are taking shape, and crews have begun excavation work on the new natatorium.

The academic addition is progressing quickly. The concrete slab and decking are in place, and structural steel installation continues.
