Garner Construction Update
Good news! Construction has officially started on our new fine arts addition to the northeast corner of our Garner schoolhouse. Over the next 9 months, we will be sharing construction updates in our weekly Garner Gator Gazette Newsletter. Anticipated completion of construction is August 2020.
This week they are breaking concrete in the north parking lot to reroute the water main. Water will be shut off to the building for a short time during Thanksgiving break.
Please feel free to contact Mrs. Langenfeld if you have any questions at email@example.com.
