The bond program continues to roll on as contractors continue extensive work on Walla Walla High School, Pioneer Middle School and Lincoln High School to bring these facilities up to the standards needed for today's learning. There is plenty of progress to report thanks to Walla Walla's support.
In January, Pioneer Middle School staff welcomed students into the recently completed Phase One bond projects. Staff took students on a tour of the renovated 1950's gym, new locker rooms and new auxiliary gym/fitness center. They also visited the new entry addition, new cafeteria, renovated 1950's wing, classroom addition and new performing arts expansion.
Phase Two projects at Pioneer, which include additions to the main building for science and art classrooms, are underway and will be completed by the start of the 2022-2023 school year.
At Walla Walla High School, the renovated and expanded original Commons opened last month for students to gather and eat. A renovated kitchen supports a variety of meal options and new serving windows improve efﬁciencies. The Commons has new heating and cooling systems, modern energy efﬁcient windows in the iconic north-facing glass wall and new student store. Progress continues on the Wa-Hi student outdoor plaza just outside the Commons where students will be able to socialize, eat meals on nice days and catch up on homework. The main academic building is halfway through its complete renovation and will be ﬁnished in August.
Contractors continue working on the historic Lincoln High School remodel and expansion to be completed this fall.
