Update: June 26, 2014

The pace is picking up and we are getting ever closer to opening the new school! The gym exterior is now nearly complete, and the back parking lot is being completely rebuilt and will connect to the recently completed pool parking lot. All of the built in furniture has been installed and desks and chairs are only a couple weeks away. Tour attendees will notice that the air conditioning is functioning, the floors are being polished and final paint colors are being applied throughout the building. Please note the following important information regarding the project:

  • There will be no Community Engagement Committee meeting on July 7.
  • Also on July 7 the main office staff will be temporarily relocating to the multipurpose room at Mount Vernon Community School until August 15. Special thanks to Mr. Balas at MVCS for accommodating the Jefferson-Houston staff.
  • We are distributing much of the existing furniture and technology to other schools over the next several days.
  • There will be no tour on July 4.
