  • Schoolyard Construction Information

    We know the construction on our schoolyard has been an inconvenience. The construction was slated to begin in June, but unfortunately didn’t begin until late July. Because of this, the crew has been working 7a.m. -7 p.m. seven days a week to catch up.

    We know what an inconvenience this has been for our community. It is our hope that all will be complete by June 2023. We will of course keep you updated on the construction progress as well as dismissal procedures for the fall.
