  • New Building is a Modern Education Environment

    Posted by Kelcey Davis on 1/15/2021

    The new Administration, Library and Classroom Building is on track to be ready for occupancy during the 2021 spring semester. As you’ll see in some of these photos, it is beginning to look like the modern educational environment we planned. The Facility District Advisory Committee was recently given a tour.

    The library is coming along. It offers natural light, thoughtful and flexible furniture, conference rooms, and an excellent resource for the students. The furniture in the library is conducive to collaboration and can be reconfigured for different-size groups.

    The building's solar panels can be seen from below. These solar panels are a welcome addition to the new building and will help us achieve our district sustainability goals.

    The new Administration, Library and Classroom Building is fully furnished and complete. Staff has moved in and is working out of the new building, which will welcome students as soon as pandemic conditions make it safe. Take a look at these great interior spaces!

    Meanwhile, architects are designing Phase 1 of the Board-approved campus plan, which will eventually bring a new high school building, a performing arts center to be shared by middle and high schools, improved traffic flow on Morning View Drive and more.

  • MMHS Construction Update: New Building on Track for Spring Opening

    Posted by Chris Clonts on 9/4/2020 6:00:00 AM

    The new Administration, Library and Classroom Building will not be ready to open for the fall of 2020. The District encountered delays related to approval of the roofing system, street work and availability of certain materials. They are now on track to be complete during the fall of 2020 and ready for building occupancy during the 2021 spring semester.

     Architects are designing Phase 1 of the Board-approved campus plan, which will eventually bring a new high school building, a performing arts center to be shared by middle and high schools, improved traffic flow on Morning View Drive and more.
