Solar Panel Installation to Begin!

During the Spring Break, the first phase of the solar panel installation to our school roof will begin. Phase One includes lifting the materials to the roof, so you may see a crane around our building next week. After that, work will begin on the roof to install the panels. The work will not interfere with instruction. If you have any questions, please let me know.
