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.
