The reconfigured North Judson-San Pierre Schools are almost ready for students, according to information shared with the school board Tuesday night. Director of Facilities Wilbur Collins says the original coolers in the high school cafeteria have been replaced, and a new rubber roof with a 15-year warranty is now in place over the high school office. The roof it flat, and that is a perennial problem spot.
Collins also told the school board the 6th grade lockers have been moved from the middle school to the elementary, which will house kindergarten through 6th grades this year. Classrooms for 6th, 7th and 8th graders are ready in their respective buildings. The school board voted earlier this year to combine the middle and high school into North Judson-San Pierre Junior-Senior High and relocated students into the high school building.
Also a computer lab in the shop hallway at the high school has been rewired to double its capacity. It can now hold 30 students at a time instead of 15.
As of Tuesday, Collins said 85 to 90 percent of the facilities had been cleaned and were ready for the start of school. Teacher work days are scheduled Aug. 2 and 3. Aug. 4 is the first day for students.
