***Construction Update. APS and Centex (general contractor) are furiously trying to prepare for the return of students on Monday August 11. This is a big weekend for completing trailer set-up and temporary space under stadium; followed by a thorough cleaning for the whole facility and finally moving possessions back to new locations.

Demolition is about 80% complete and contractor will continue to use access through parking lot reducing the number of available spaces. Dr. Murray will notify students and teachers about designated parking after the start of school. Look for helpful information from PTSA about traffic control measures.

Our staff and teachers are great. We really appreciate their good attitude about living within a construction site for a whole year. Let us give them more support than ever!
