UPDATE: 

Work on the additions is ongoing. The south classroom addition is progressing on schedule and will be ready for students this August. Steel erection for the "in-fill" addition (between the main school building and the cafeteria and gym building) is complete as contractors work to get the new kitchen and new cafeteria ready for the start of school this August. The foundation for the north addition - locker rooms and athletic area - is almost complete. That addition is scheduled to be complete mid-fall.

Inside the existing building, renovations for the fine arts rooms include dance, piano, theater and music. The band, choir and orchestra rooms are mostly finished, and the theatre and dance spaces are underway. Outside, a new parking area on the west side of the building is now open along with the redone north-side parking lot. A new fire loop is also complete along with a new retention pond. The athletic field has been resurfaced with field turf and is now open.

Renovations to the existing building is scheduled to start in September, after students have moved into the new classroom addition, and will be complete in the fall semester of 2022.
