  • Spring/Summer 2021 - The project is in the homestretch! The new addition including gym, locker rooms, concessions and associated offices were turned over in mid-March.  They are in use by students and staff.  The Admin staff has moved into the new gym offices temporarily to allow work to proceed on renovating the 2nd floor old office area that will become classrooms.  The Library is also now undergoing renovations.  During the summer, the lower level (south gym), entire 1st floor, and remaining areas on the 2nd floor will be renovated.  The west playground blacktop will be recoated and new fencing installed around the playground and north parking lot.  The south exterior stairs will be re-built and masonry restoration around the existing building will occur. All work should be completed in August ready for the return of all Edison students.

  • Fall 2021 - Renovations in the original building were completed and the project reached substantial completion in August. The final occupancy permit from the Regional Office of Education was received and students are back in the classrooms. Site landscaping and exterior canopies will be completed this month. Flooring defects in some classrooms and the gym are planned to be addressed during Winter Break and Summer 2022.
