Oak Ridge High School's Weekly Update

WENN Episode 2013

Bond Construction Update

This month the school board will vote on the guaranteed maximum price for the construction and renovation at ORHS. This project will touch every corner of ORHS and will include system upgrades, aesthetic improvements inside and outside the buildings, and a new CTE center that will include a robotics lab, improved welding facilities, and an auto-tech lab in additional to upgraded health science facilities.

The road that goes through the senior and ninth grade campus will be rerouted to allow thru traffic to travel around the school. The bus ramp will be moved to the ninth grade center for both campuses, and the senior campus front entrance will be moved from the south side of the building to the west side of the building. This project is estimated to take 30 months to complete.

I will share more information once construction begins and how it will impact your child as they attend ORHS.
