The new two-story building will be housing the Science and Social Science departments starting mid-May. When that happens, the Math & Science wing classrooms, north of the mid-hall stairway (opposite side from Business), both upstairs and downstairs, will be completely closed off. Many classes will be relocated. Moving will begin after CST and AP exams.
The lockers situated in that closed-off area will not be accessible for the remainder of the school year. When the project is completed and the area is reopen for use, so will those lockers.
In the meantime, we are looking at reassigning unused lockers to those students who will be losing their lockers during this renovation period. Once we have some specific numbers and information, we will notify students. Thank you in advance for your patience, cooperation, and understanding, for this major inconvenience. -Ms. Love
