FCS Building Project has Begun!
We are excited to inform the Forestville school community that construction on the building project has begun. The District has hired Tom Bixby, a Forestville resident, from the architecture firm Harrington Sandberg to oversee the day-to-day project activities. The main components of the project include a new multi-purpose auditorium, new band room, relocation of the main offices to the first floor front of the building, new bus garage located in the rear of the existing high school parking lot, movement of the football field to the back of the elementary school, renovation of the high school cafeteria and a new wastewater treatment facility, along with technology and electrical system upgrades. Due to the amount of work at the middle/high school, some of our classrooms will be unavailable during the construction process. A plan was developed by Mr. Leichner and the counseling department to assure that all classes would continue as originally planned. This requires teachers to share classrooms and for students to take classes in different rooms than they were originally scheduled. The new plan was implemented when we returned from Christmas break. We expect minimal disruptions to students and staff at the elementary school. Although we are sure that we will face some unexpected challenges over the next eighteen months, we are confident that the faculty, staff and students will rise to the occasion. We are all looking forward to the upgrade in facilities and what it will mean for improving the academic programs for the Forestville school community.
