Letter from Principal on School Bond Updates
June 25, 2018 By:Jason Heimerdinger
Dear Celtic Families,
Exciting changes will be coming to our school soon, thanks to the community’s support of the 2018 bond!
Construction at McNary High School is expected to begin in the summer of 2019. Although we’re a year away from major construction, there’s a lot to do ahead of time. You will likely notice some physical preparations for construction before 2019, like surveyors and contractors on campus. We will also encourage you to start preparing mentally NOW for the challenges we’ll face later during the construction phase.
Construction is expected to be complete by fall 2020. This means that our school will be an active construction zone during the 2019-20 school year.
Here are a few of the renovations planned for McNary:
- 14 new classrooms
- One new science lab
- Two career-technical education spaces
- Expanded parking and drop-off lanes
- Expanded music space
Construction contractors, architects, our school design team and district bond program management team will work together to minimize disruption to the educational environment. However, we can all expect that school operations will be very different during construction! It is important to remain flexible during this time, and to remember construction is a temporary phase that will result in amazing improvements.
Please remember: Our commitment to student safety and success will still be our highest priority during construction.
It’s also important to remember that construction on this scale will affect not only our school, staff and students, but our neighbors as well. We’ll all want to be aware of how construction may affect our neighbors and be respectful of their concerns.
If you haven’t seen the final floor plans for renovations at McNary, please stop by the school office or view them online athttps://bondinfo.salkeiz.k12.or.us/bonddocuments/
Thank you for your support of your student and our school. We’re grateful to our community for approving the 2018 bond and look forward to the improvements at our school!
I look forward to seeing your student at McNary this fall and to sharing more news about construction plans with you.
