Remodeling also will include adding a small group office, new building access and a vestibule on the west side of the school, additional parking on the west side, and updating and replacing the building sprinkling system. The east side parking lot will be resurfaced and the roof over the school office and multipurpose room (the current gym) will be replaced.
