Three Rivers Community Schools Superintendent Ron Moag recently discussed progress of work related to renovations at some of the district’s schools.
In the wake of a voter-approved bond request in November 2019, work has started at Hoppin Elementary School and Three Rivers High School, and will eventually include Park, Andrews and Norton elementary schools.
The request will generate $61.2 million dollars over its life and allow the district to address a significant number of matters.
Moag said a common thread to the first phase is security. He said Hoppin’s design for what will be a new main entrance includes a number of security features. The updated entrance will extend north from the building, while entryway work at the other buildings was slated to start this week.
Meanwhile, another component at the high school centers on a new, 5,000-square-foot weight room at the northeast end of the building.
