A Letter from the Superintendent to the Trojan Nation

Happy Holidays Everyone!! 

This time of year finds us preparing for the busyness of the upcoming holidays.  From music concerts and classroom parties to the Lions Club’s Old Fashioned Christmas (Dec 8 from 6-9:00 p.m. and Dec 9 from 4-7:00 p.m. at Pomona Park) there is a lot to look forward to as we get ready to bring in the New Year.

Speaking of things to look forward to, the school district has completed its work on the design of the high school bond project. Details can be found on the “Community” page of our district website.  It is now in the hands of the architect to make finishing touches to the drawings before it is submitted for state approvals.  Very soon our construction manager will take the completed drawings and develop the bid documents.  Bids will go out in early January and awarded in February.

With a portion of the high school bond project beginning in March, many high school staff are beginning to move things around and put things in storage in preparation of contractors beginning their work.  Know that as this project progresses, our students and staff will need to be very patient and flexible.  After all, the current high school location will become a construction site with work on new construction taking place immediately behind our existing structure.  That said, construction will be coordinated with the school so that our students’ education doesn’t miss a beat.

With that, I hope you add the high school bond project to your list of things to celebrate as you prepare for what I hope is a joyous and wonderful Holiday Season!!
