Since the new school visioning sessions and planning team meetings in the spring, the design, construction, and administration teams have been working on school design and pre-construction site surveys. In early July, the construction team took soil samples, looked for foundation remains from the previous school buildings razed in the 1970s, and completed a traffic study.

The design team continues to meet weekly over the summer. The schematic design was submitted at the end of June and is currently in the estimation phase.

A public groundbreaking ceremony is planned for November 2017 in anticipation of construction beginning in the spring of 2018.
