ReModel Updates - Ye Olde 500 Wing & Columbia River Stadium
We are down to just a few piles of bricks in the west parking where Ye Olde 500 Wing stood for decades. The New 500 is looking majestic as the warm weather is allowing for some terrific signs of progress.
The Stadium Crow’s Nest has been demolished and our concrete footings have been poured for the much-needed safety upgrades in supporting the cover of our stadium grandstands. We will see some significant progress over the next several weeks on the stadium as materials arrive and we wrap up spring sports on our track and field.
Please Complete the Technology Survey
Thank you to all 283 students who completed the survey yesterday. You do not need to do it again and we will be reaching out ASAP for any of you who have repair issues.
We do need to get info from EVERY student who has a school device to help us plan end of year check in, renewal and repair. If you missed it yesterday, please complete it today before the weekend! Have a great Friday and feel free to reach out to us if you need anything else or if you have questions.
