Contractors report that construction of the first phase of Sierra Lutheran High School's new campus is right on schedule.
As walls go up, the structural shape of the facilities will become evident. Plans call for construction to be completed in the spring 2010, with a date of dedication to be announced at a later time.
The 33,000-square-foot project will include classrooms, science labs, a computer lab, full gymnasium and locker rooms, an administration area and more.
The estimated $6.5 million facility has been blessed with individual gifts and pledges, as well as loans from two districts of the Church Extension Fund of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
Approximately $700,000 remains to be raised to ensure completion of the entire facility.
A celebration of the new site is scheduled for 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. The public is invited to the open house, which will take place in the community room of the new East Fork Fire & Paramedic Station 12, next door to Sierra Lutheran's site and near the intersection of Highway 395 and North Sunridge Drive. Stop in to see the architectural renderings, construction visuals, and an opportunity to ask questions of the builder and school leaders.
