HHS Construction Update: February 1, 2020
Good afternoon, Harrison Parents/Guardians and Students.
We continue to be in construction "mode" in and around our Harrison campus. The following map provides detailed information about the impacted areas of our campus:
A few highlights:
- Parking continues to be significantly restricted in the southeast parking lot (the area bordered by the K wing and the pool/weight room). Students should plan to park in the other student parking areas around the building: the lower south lot (for those seniors who reserved parking spaces in May 2019), the north lot (between the cafeteria and the baseball field, the parking lot behind the "home" football bleachers, and the northeast lot (bordered by the K wing and the old tennis courts). Overflow parking is available in the parking lot between the soccer and softball fields as well.
- A new parking area has opened to the east of the school. This parking area connects our facility and campus directly to County Road 600 North. At this time, the road is not accessible, but the parking lot is in use. We anticipate the road being opened in the spring once final construction steps can be completed.
- Exterior doors #7 through #14 will not be accessible during construction on the pool and weight room areas.
- Although vehicles will still be able to circle the school, this is intended primarily for construction and/or emergency vehicles access. Driving completely around the school will be limited and difficult during construction.
- All athletic events attendees will enter via Door #4 (circle drive).
- Anticipated upcoming projects will include the renovation and expansion of our FACS cooking areas. Currently, one area serves all students; however, this summer this area will be completely renovated and then a second culinary arts area will be added to our current building allowing us to serve more students in these classes.
- Our main entry, Door #1, will see a renovation during the summer of 2020 which will include opening the space more on the outside of the building and creating a secure vestibule inside the entrance. Visitors to the building beginning in the Fall of 2020 will have to come into the main office to gain access to the rest of the building.
I recognize that this construction will present some short-term inconveniences, but the long-term benefits will be outstanding. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and patience as we move forward. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
