Update for 11/12/21
A water line has been ruptured on the south side of campus so some water lines have been secured to isolate the pipes so repairs can be done. The result is that water to the restrooms on the west side of the campus (including the gym) will be open and those restrooms are in service, but campus restrooms and watering stations on the east side of campus are NOT in service (the B, F, G, H, I, J, and K bldgs). 20 port-a-potties will be opened just to the south of the V-wing and a few more will be placed just to the south of the main office to provide some other options.

Cases of water will be provided to students outside the health office again to augment watering stations.

It is not certain how long the water from this breakage will take to fix. There is additional plumbing work that was scheduled after school on Monday. We are requesting that as much work be accomplished during this water shut-down so it will have less impact on Monday.

Update for 11/9/21
As you can see when entering through the front of the campus, the S-wing is now almost completely torn down. Demo continues on that wing, however, the work on the water pipes and valves in that area is not scheduled to begin until Thanksgiving break. Not having any water shut off during school is indeed good news:-)

We are still planning to conduct a test of the fire alarm system after school at some point next week. We have requested the test go over Thanksgiving break as well. However, if the testing must be done prior to that, we will do all possible to deconflict with other campus activities (including events around drama's upcoming play Almost, Maine- showing next week Nov 17, 18, and 19). More word to follow once dates are confirmed...

Regarding today's false fire alarm- classrooms in the V-wing evacuated to the stadium and then did not hear the "all clear" call (we were reminded that the PA system does not reach the stadium). In the future, we will dispatch a campus assistant or other staff member to pass the "all clear" message to those in the stadium. 

Thank you for your flexibility and support!

Update for 10/29/21

Please be advised that the fire alarm system will be tested again on Monday 11/1/2021 at 3:00PM. Expect frequent alarms both visual and aural. One of the duct detectors will be replaced at 1:00PM on Monday 11/1/2021 prior to the start of testing. After school programs and activities will certainly be affected.

The marquee has been taken offline as of today. It will be offline in order to finish the demo of the western-most modular S-wing classroom building. The work on the area on the southside of E11 was delayed due to lack of parts. Once the necessary parts are procured, the area will be dug up again and the barricades will be put up again. This could all occur within the next few weeks, but the marquee sign will be offline for a few months.

Again, please let me know of any questions or concerns. The situation remains very fluid and your patience is much appreciated.  —Brian Josten, Asst. Principal
 

Update for 10/18/21

Demolition of the T and R-wings has been all but completed. Construction slows down considerably when the weather gets wet. Once dry, work will continue at the northern site. Also, demolition of the S-wing will continue once the weather permits.

An asphalt contractor will be on site Oct 26th to lay an asphalt ramp at the north stadium entrance ramp, adjacent to our AG spaces.

The construction on our campus remains a very fluid situation and updates will be sent weekly or when something comes up that requires your attention. Your flexibility and communication are an important part of the overall success. Construction meetings happen at the end of each week (normally Thurs or Fri) and any campus concerns can be presented at that time.

Update for 10/18/21

Be advised that the water will NOT be shut off this afternoon, however, we can expect it will be shut off at some point in the future (possibly as early as this Wednesday). Updated information will be posted once a date is confirmed. We have let the construction manager know that shutting off the water after school, although much more favorable than during school hours, greatly impacts our students and staff involved with after school activities. Therefore, we are looking for ways to limit any negative impact by scheduling out water outages as far in advance as possible, grouping water outage events to the greatest extent possible, and targeting some weekend work when possible.


Update for 10/15/21
Please be advised that saw-cutting on the SW side of the E-Bldg will begin at 7am tomorrow morning. That will be followed by some air-hammering. The workers will be doing their best to have the most distracting noises finished within a couple hours (before 9:30).

Also, we are going to need to shut off the water on campus from 2:45pm Monday, Oct 18th until Tuesday morning, Oct 19th (water to be turned on prior to school beginning). This will impact our after school programs.
