Construction projects at Gibraltar Area Schools could leave some students feeling a little lost on their first day of classes in September. The district’s $4 million-plus project includes a new security entrance, a remodeled library/media center, and new classrooms. As a result, parts of the school will be closed to students and staff and even some courses will be taught in mobile classrooms in the district’s parking lot. Gibraltar Area Schools Superintendent Tina Van Meer hopes an open house for students on August 28th from 4 to 5 p.m. will help them become more familiar with where they will need to go on day one.
Van Meer says even with some minor issues along the way, the projects are still expected to be finished on time for a completion date shortly after the district’s holiday break.
