You will soon see new construction at the high/middle school campus. DER Construction out of Milford will be the general contractor for two new buildings: a weight training facility and a restroom/concessions building. The weight training facility will be built where the outdoor basketball courts used to be. It will consist of a weight/cross training space, locker rooms, and a large multi-purpose room that will be used for wrestling practice during season. The restroom/concessions building will be constructed in the new Track/Soccer Stadium. It will consist of public restrooms, a concessions area, changing and storage rooms as well as a trainer’s room. Both facilities are slated to be finished by mid-October.
In other news, the district is exploring the replacement of the bus access road behind the elementary school. The current road is full of potholes and the pavement has deteriorated to the point where the roadway is literally falling apart. That construction would take place this summer after school is out.
