Columbia Heights High School

The new band room is complete and classes began using the space shortly thereafter -- prior to the distance learning period.

The Performing Arts Center and gymnasium have both reached the final stage in the remodeling process. Once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, final walk-throughs will be completed and the spaces will be cleared to open.

North Park Elementary

Construction at North Park Elementary continues with anticipated completion in August 2020. The classroom and cafeteria additions are almost completely enclosed. Specific developments include:

  • Brick work is almost completed -- slight delays due to COVID-19 restrictions
  • Windows in classroom addition and cafeteria are being completed.
  • HVAC and plumbing within the additions are nearly completed
  • Framing in classroom and cafeteria additions is up and sheetrock is in progress
  • Painting and tile work is well underway in the classroom additions

Remodeling of the main building is four weeks ahead of schedule due to increased access of the school building resulting from COVID-19 school closures. Site work on the driveways, parking, playgrounds and landscaping is also underway.
