• MMHS Construction Update: New Building on Track for Spring Opening

    Posted by Chris Clonts on 9/4/2020 6:00:00 AM

    The new Administration, Library and Classroom Building will not be ready to open for the fall of 2020. The District encountered delays related to approval of the roofing system, street work and availability of certain materials. They are now on track to be complete during the fall of 2020 and ready for building occupancy during the 2021 spring semester.

     Architects are designing Phase 1 of the Board-approved campus plan, which will eventually bring a new high school building, a performing arts center to be shared by middle and high schools, improved traffic flow on Morning View Drive and more.

    The floor-to-ceiling glass on the new building gives a view of the Pacific Ocean.

    The improved Morning View Drive face of the new building.

    Built-in furniture is being installed in the classrooms.

    • Structural steel has been delivered to the site and nearly all of the steel for one segment of the building has been erected and bolted in place.
