High School Construction

schoolConstruction on the Fruitport High School is right on schedule with the new two-story academic wing slated to be ready for students after the holiday break.

Over the summer, lighting was installed, classrooms and hallways were carpeted, walls were painted, and the HVAC and boiler system was installed.  Classrooms are ready for furniture and the elevator will soon be installed.

classroomThe kitchen equipment and new serving area are well underway and will be ready for students in January.  The work accomplished this summer was incredible.

The next two months will be a busy time for our technology and maintenance crews while they move teachers to their new classrooms, install wifi and the phone system.  They will work to get classroom furniture in place so students will have a new environment to learn and thrive.

The auditorium should be ready for use in August 2020, and the rest of the project (locker commons, offices, media center) will be done by the summer of 2021.

We hope you took time to visit the high school during the open house on October 26th.  But if you didn’t there will be another one this spring!
