Project Update

July 15, 2016

At this time the first phase of the building and remodel project is still on schedule. If everthing continues as is we will have our offices ready for occupancy on August 12. We may still need to make some temporary changes to parking and entry ways until the driveway in front of Stull gym and the Junior High are completed. 
We will be getting information out to parents and staff soon on where to go for enrollment. These will most likely take place in the cafeteria's and the Art room at the high school 
The new locker rooms behind Stull gym are behind schedule but they are getting caught up. Work also continues on the new gym at Eisenhower. The north bathrooms at Eisenhower are quite a ways behind schedule but work on them will begin soon. 
There will be a lot of work taking place at the construction sites between now and August 5. We will have several subcontractors on site at the same time the next three weeks. 
Below I have included some photos of the project.

Construction Underway at

Eisenhower and the Junior High!

Dirt work and demolition are underway at Eisenhower Elementary and the Junior High School. The contractors are leveling and compacting the soil for the new buildings that are going up at these locations. The footings are being dug this week at both locations. 
Next week the power will be off at both locations as the final transfer to the new transformers takes place and the new water and gas lines are put to work. This will take place during spring break so students will not be affected. 
The demolition work inside of the Stull gym lobby is also going well. The demolition crews have cleared out the restrooms and anything of value has been salvaged. 
Thus far everything continues to be on schedule. Please be careful when driving around the schools as we have a lot of construction traffic as well as student traffic every day.

Project Work at the Junior High

The construction project has begun at the junior high with the removal of sidewalks and part of the parking lot in front of the building. This area has been fenced off and will remain fenced off throughout the project. Work will soon begin at Eisenhower Elementary on the west side of the building. Sidewalks and trees will also be moved there. This area will also be fenced off to protect students from entering the construction area.

Construction to Begin
Starting on Monday, February 22, work will begin on our building projects at Norton Community Schools. The first phase will be fencing of the construction areas at the high school, junior high, and Eisenhower Elementary. The parking lot in front of the junior high will be blocked and access to the front of the junior high school will be limited. There will be limited parking spaces in the high school parking lot for people coming to the junior high or high school. Please enter the Junior High through the south entry of the junior high.
Starting March 7, parking will also be more limited in front of Stull gym. Access to the front of Stull gym will be limited as well. Please be careful when driving in this area.

Access at the front of Eisenhower will remain the same at this time as most of work will be to the west of the building. There will be limited access to the west of Eisenhower Elementary starting on Monday, February 22.

Moving Utilities


The USD 211 building project is underway as the first work is now taking place. Contractors are moving our utility lines at Eisenhower and at the High School so that when construction begins in March we will be ready to go! 
The City of Norton started things off by moving our electric lines at Eisenhower and now the construction contractors are moving water lines and eventually gas lines. All of these lines will be moved from now till the middle of Christmas break. At that time the new lines will be put into service and the old ones unhooked. This allows us to continue to have school uninterrupted and will prevent us from being interrupted when we get back from break. Thanks to the city as well as Hutton Construction and our subcontractors for getting this done!
