Phase 1

Phase 1 will focus on the GRIFFIN STREET side of the building. The following classrooms/departments will move to the 1st floor of the building:

  • Main offices
  • Pre-k

  • 4th grade
  • Specials

ALL students will enter the building on the JAMES P. BRAWLEY DRIVE side of the building starting on May 30, until Phase 1 is complete.

While we hope for all phases to be complete by the scheduled dates provided by contractors, all dates are tentative, and could change with little notice.

Renovation Rendering Phase 2 will begin around January 2019 and will continue through July 2019.

The following classrooms/departments will move to the top (3rd) floor of the building, to their permanent locations:

During Phase 3, classrooms and departments will shift within the building, as contractors complete the "finishing touches" (Media Center, STEM Labs, etc.). All classes will move to their permanent locations.
