This was a busy week at KHS. PC Construction is preparing the front lawn for the modular classrooms that will be used during the renovation. The top soil has been taken off-site and will be returned when the project is completed. The flag pole has been removed, but it will also return once the portables are no longer out front. Several trees are also being taken down, but the ones along Fletcher St and around the Veterans' Memorial will remain. Memorial trees have been tagged and will be relocated.
During the renovations, students, faculty/staff, and visitors will park in the back of the buildings. The area along Fletcher St. is for construction vehicles.
In the next week, three of the portables that are currently behind KHS will be moved to the front lawn via a driveway that will be cut to the left of the current Gym A. Two new modulars will also be installed on the front lawn and ramps and walkways will be put in place so that the classrooms will be accessible after April vacation. At the end of the year, two portables from Consolidated School will be added to the front lawn. A major savings on the project has been the use of portables already owned by the district, as well as the use of the Building C "English wing" throughout the renovation.
Asbestos abatement has taken place in Building C and the portion of that building from Gym C, back to the art rooms, and over as far as the English wing will be taken down in July.
The tennis courts will be removed as soon as spring sports end. They will be relocated behind the football field and the area currently occupied by the tennis courts will become part of the parking lot.
