Oak Hills High School construction on track
HUSD official: ”It’s starting to look like a little city”
Construction on the Hesperia Unified School District’s next high school is on track and classrooms are beginning to sprout up on the 80-acre campus.
“The contract is to have the school done by August of ’09. I don’t know if you’ve driven out there lately, but the contractor is moving right along,” George Landon, Assistant Superintendent of Business Services for the Hesperia Unified School District, said Thursday. “A lot of the masonry buildings are being constructed and even some of the modular classrooms are going in. It’s starting to look like a little city out there.”
Recent bad weather has slowed construction somewhat, he said, but Riverside-based ASR Constructors remain on track.
“They’re moving right along,” he said. “They’ve really accomplished a whole lot.”
The district is building a number of schools, with more on the drawing board. The HUSD’s third middle school, which opened at the beginning of this school year, should be finished by year’s end.
“Cedar Middle School will be wrapping that up by the end of the year,” Landon said.
But first, the district will be opening its next elementary school. Mission Crest Elementary School is scheduled to open its doors on March 24.
