MS/HS Exterior Renovations
Over the summer and fall, contractors completed masonry repairs on the middle and high schools, which will prevent future water intrusion and further damage. Additionally, the roof on the PMHS annex building, which connects the high school and middle school, was also replaced. Earlier this school year, additional necessary masonry repairs were identified near the main entrance to the high school and the District is working with its architect to develop a scope of work and address these areas.
HS/MS Interior Renovations
After postponing the conversion of District offices in PMHS into classroom space last spring due to the pandemic, the work is now expected to begin later this school year. Once work begins, some District administrative offices will relocate to 314 Pelhamdale Avenue. The HS/MS renovations will create a dedicated orchestra rehearsal space, six new classrooms as well as science lab upgrades. The District is hopeful that this project will be completed early next school year.
Installation of a new synthetic turf field and replacement of the tennis courts were completed this summer, allowing both to be used by varsity athletes and recreation programs during the fall. During the work, the need to replace a culvert pipe running below the field was discovered and the District recently approved a contractor to complete this project using already approved bond funds. Once the pipe is repaired, contractors will complete the field project by installing a batting cage and bullpen. We look forward to seeing our athletes out on the fields and courts again soon.
