Students, staff and families will want to note there will be a change in the student drop-off and pick-up location at the high school Friday, June 14 through Wednesday, June 19, to accommodate construction work on the auditorium.

On these days, students and staff who enter on the Delaware Avenue side of the building will use the Athletic Entrance (Gym B). Those dropping off and picking up will still be able to pull into the Student Drop Off area using the Van Dyke Road entrance but will proceed beyond the Main Entrance to the Athletic Entrance (Gym B).

All visitors to the school will also enter through the Athletic Entrance (Gym B) on these days.

The construction work will require contractors to have access to the roof and the area around the main entrance to provide space for equipment to remove roofing materials from the auditorium.

The contractors are continuing asbestos abatement in the auditorium to prepare the auditorium for major renovation, which includes raising the roof height above the stage. The area where the work is being done is not accessible to students or staff and all abatement work is being done in full compliance with regulatory safety measures. There is also continuous monitoring of air quality during the abatement.

Workers will be doing the roof work throughout the weekend (June 15-16) and this work is expected to be completed by Wednesday, June 19.
