Site Plan

Site Plan Improvements:

  • Separating bus and parent drop off entrances and drives for safety and efficiency. The main entrance at the front (street) side of the building will be for buses. Being next to the main office, it also serves as a secure entrance during the school day for visitors and increases safety.
  • A car/parent drop off entrance on the west side of the site alleviates congestion.
  • Parking capacity increased with student parking remaining on the school side of the road for safety. Staff and visitor parking will be across the street.
  • Access to the athletic fields has been maintained.
  • Deliveries are grouped on one side of the building—away from the main entrance.
  • The maintenance shed will be moved across South Main Street to promote a more efficient use of the main building site.

Floor Plan Improvements:

The design retains most of the existing Jr./Sr. High School with strategic levels of renovations appropriate to its age and evolution of its use. Small portions of the building are being removed to provide for more efficient and modern additions that meet the needs of the educational program.

The street side entrance will be restored to allow for a bus drop-off and main entry during the school day with proper access control from the main office. An East side entrance will be used during parent pick-up and drop-off times.

Classrooms and a Library/Media Center receive natural light from a center, exterior courtyard which will also serve as an outdoor classroom. The Library/Media center and its auxiliary spaces are clustered together in the area previously occupied by the cafeteria and kitchen. The existing stage has been expanded, and a Cafetorium is centrally located for easy access by all grades. The new cafeteria location allows for an expanded, more appropriately sized kitchen with a shared delivery/maintenance entry.

The Junior High classrooms are centered in the eastern part of the building with most in the new addition wing. Senior High classrooms are primarily on the second floor. Science rooms and the Tech Ed area are in the two-story, western building addition. Special Education programs are dispersed throughout the building to appropriately support the students served. The Family and Consumer Science, Special Education, and educational support spaces have been “right sized” and renovated for improved services. The more recent Gymnasium remains in place with additional supporting program and utility areas in the adjacent, one-story addition.

Other upgrades include:

  • Envelope upgrades (insulation, windows)
  • New mechanical, electrical, and fire alarm systems
  • Updated sprinkler system
  • New consolidated science wing
  • Addition of code-required restrooms
