South Campus Construction

We are excited to announce that construction work is scheduled to begin on the South Campus entrance starting Tuesday, September 3rd. We would like all student drivers to use extra caution as you arrive to school. We will have staff members in the parking lot, helping to direct the flow of traffic.

Please know that the construction workers all have background checks on file. They are aware that they are to have no interaction with our students, they are not permitted to smoke on school grounds, and they will not be entering the building for any reason.

If you encounter any issues with the construction process, please let a teacher or administrator know as soon as possible.
