April/May 2018 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=21 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=21{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}April/May 2018Preliminary work has already begun in select areas around the school but will be primarily focused on the 100 level (lunchroom) area through the end of May. The existing lunchroom will be closed to students/staff beginning April 23rd, with a temporary lunchroom/serving area opening in the Student Commons on the same day. Demolition of the old cafeteria, along with the installation of temporary mechanical, electrical and other systems will take place during the month of May. There will also be minor electrical work taking place around the school in preparation for much more invasive work beginning the week of May 28th. Outside, you will begin to see more fencing, roll-off dumpsters and construction vehicles on the northeast side of the school. Construction vehicles will access the site via a temporary road north of the track. The adjacent sidewalk in this location will remain open for student use per usual. While this is just the beginning of a fairly long project (scheduled completion date of August 2019), we are very excited about the improvements coming to Fairview in the months ahead. We appreciate all of your support in making these changes possible . . . Go, Knights!
