December Update Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=3 Updates/DispForm.aspx?ID=3{28e838a4-8015-4177-ac17-2576b5d1e514}December UpdateConstruction plans are on track to begin after winter break. Staging of the construction zone is anticipated to occur over break. The construction zone and other details are described in the document at the link below. One-third of the parking lot will be given to the construction zone, so we highly encourage using Tantra as the primary drop off and pick up zone. The flow of pickup and drop-off will be very similar to our current model, just condensed. Front entry is still the main point for entry and exit, and the north door is the main entry for the Tantra walk-up. Lunch areas will be restricted to the cafeteria and front of school tables. Lunch play time will still include field access and supervision and we will be creating a schedule of rotating open gym access to supplement for the lack of outdoor court access. Please continue to check our weekly updates and newsletters for emerging details and reminders.​, Summit Staging Plan
