As Christmastime nears, so does the much-anticipated Christmas break for students. But while school kids will be getting a couple weeks off to relax between semesters, the teachers at Kodiak High School will be busy moving their classrooms to the new “tower,” as the four-story addition is called.
At last night’s Kodiak Island Borough Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Stuart McDonald said the school district will receive the keys to the building just as the Christmas break begins.
“And what that means is we’ll have to spend the holiday break actually doing the physical relocation, and moving all the way until school starts up again with students January 6th.”
And, McDonald added, speaking of moving in, McDonald added, “We’ll still be looking for volunteers to check in with the high school to see if anybody is interested helping teachers pack or any such thing.”
Once classes have been moved to the tower, work can concentrate on the next phase of the project, which includes a new entrance on the southwest corner.
