Construction Update

posted Mar 22, 2018, 10:39 AM by Jamie Koehler

A note to our KES families that our construction and renovation project continues to progress at our school. The new addition is coming along nicely and we have masons adding the brick exterior to some of the new portions, which is quite exciting. Also, we have crews that are working on projects related to removing ceiling tiles in our existing hallways to prepare for the interior renovation. The crews are working to be as quiet and discrete as possible while working during the school day so as to minimize disruptions to our classrooms. That being said, I am thankful for the patience and flexibility of our students, families, and staff during this exciting but challenging time for our school. Please let me know if you have questions or concerns about the project and I will work to help you.
