Bob Ross, director of resources and operations for Lebanon schools, says he is “pessimistically optimistic” that the new portion of Lebanon High School will be move-in ready on July 13.
“That’s in 24 days,” he said at Tuesday’s school board of trustees meeting at Lebanon Middle School. “They keep telling me every time I meet with them, which is almost every day, that we’ll be ready. But they have a lot of work to do.”
Flooring is going down right now, he said. Lights are being installed and the air conditioning is being turned on. Phase 2 demolition has begun. Everything is moving “very rapidly,” he said.
The first of three semi trucks full of furniture will arrive at LHS on either July 13 or July 16, to begin unloading.
The high school office will close at 3:30 p.m. on July 25, so staff can start moving everything over to the new office location. It will return to public hours on Aug. 6.
Teachers will have access to the new building on Aug. 1.
“I know they’re anxious already,” Ross said. “Our goal is at 8 a.m. on the first to be sitting in the office, ready to issue keys to the teachers.”
