Construction Progress

Demolition has begun on the East Elementary School Building.  In an effort to keep the community informed about our progress on the project, a camera has been installed that will take still photos every few minutes.  A link has been added to our website allowing access to see the current site view.  Updated "time-lapse" videos will be periodically created and available by clicking the "time-lapse" play button on the viewer screen.  The camera will remain in place throughout the course of the project.  A camera will be installed at the Morrison-Gordon site in the Spring of 2020 when that project gets underway.
