Modernization Update as of August 2019

 

Hello Rowland Families,

 

I am excited and proud to announce that last school year we saw the opening of additional facility on the Rowland High School campus. This included a new two-story building with the main office on the bottom floor and a library on the top. The first floor of the building is the main office and houses the administrative services staff to support the fiscal, guidance, attendance, health and school safety components of the campus to support the operations of the school. The second-floor library contains our general book circulation, textbook room, computer lab, comfortable furniture to support literacy, meeting spaces and three adjoining rooms to use for presentations and projects.

 

With the opening of this school year we have had a minor setback with the delay of the opening of our parking lot and three classrooms near the gym. This should all be resolved within two weeks of the start of school. Outside of these delays we will have more facilities released to us including the Hideout (multipurpose room), nutrition services, Band and Choir rooms and the remaining courtyard area in the center of the campus. Also, we will have a Performing Arts Center with over 600 seats opening near the end of September.

 

With these changes to the campus it is important to keep you up to date on what is happening so that you may make adjustments as needed. Things that you need to be aware of include:

 

  • The construction areas on the campus are going to be fenced off for the duration of the work. This will minimize student contact with the areas under construction.
  • Drop-off and pick-up of students will be challenging with this delay in the opening of the parking lot. Please utilize the pedestrian entry gates as much as possible with gates located at the front and M building steps (as traditionally done), and we will also open the gates on Valencia Street near the baseball and softball fields.

 

This work is necessary for Rowland High School to become the state-of-the-art facility that the community envisioned and supported. Know that throughout the construction on the campus the first priority will be for the safety of our students with the protection of the learning environment from distraction as the second.

 

Sincerely,

Mitchell Brunyer

Rowland High School Principal
