Middle School Construction Project Update

Crews are making a lot of progress with the construction of the expansion and renovation project at the middle school. In the new middle school addition, the HVAC contractor has set the rooftop units and has started setting the Samsung ceiling cassettes. The sheet rockers are roughly 90% complete with hanging drywall. The sheetrock finishers have completed the four science rooms and two science prep rooms. The painters have installed one coat of wait paint in the science rooms. The masons are roughly 95% complete installing brick veneer on the west walls of the new addition. The flooring subcontractor has started laying ceramic wall tile and ceramic floor tile in the new restrooms. The MEP contractors are making excellent progress installing their rough-ins. Don Schnieders Excavating is continuing to pour the west concrete parking lot. In the south building, the HVAC contractor installed the four rooftop units, and the flooring subcontractor installed ceramic wall tile and epoxy floors in the restrooms in the north wing of the south building over Spring Break.

Voters in the Southern Boone School District approved the $7.7 million bond issue April 2021 for the middle school construction project. The project will connect the two buildings with the new addition, which consists of a new main office, science labs, library and vocational area. The project also includes converting the current office and library into additional classrooms, and other much-needed improvements to the middle school.

Here is information about the district calendar for the 2022-2023 school year.
Voters in the Southern Boone School District approved the $3 million no-tax-increase bond issue during the April election.
