August 27, 2018 - We are eagerly anticipating the modernization of our school and would like to provide our students, parents, guardians and community members a brief update as everyone returns for the new school year. Students returning this fall will see some significant changes that will set up construction crews for the main re-build that is expected to take up to three years to complete.
The first phase will see the demolition, removal and moving of a number of modular classrooms currently on the site. The three modulars that were on the south west corner of the school located closest to our running track have been demolished to make room for the re-location of the 9 modular classrooms currently on the north east side of the building closest to the intersection of King Street and Woodhaven Drive. Phase one was set to be completed by the first day of school but unfortunately experienced some delays. Modular classrooms will be moved shortly and existing space in the school will be adjusted to accommodate students in the meantime. Once phase one is complete, phase two which consists of the construction of the new areas of the school, can begin.
We thank all the students, staff and parents in advance for all their patience as we head into some challenging, yet exciting times at Woodhaven Middle School. In the end, bright, modern and flexible learning spaces will ultimately help us achieve our ultimate goal of Student Success & Well-being for all students. We will also have a lot more of that space with the school’s core capacity increasing from 450 to 885 students.
As in past years, our staff will welcome students on the first day of school and help them find their homeroom teacher and classroom.
