New School

posted Sep 11, 2020, 10:17 AM by Ryan Palmer
The new Mt. Ararat High School facility is ready for students and staff to occupy. As with any project of this size, there are punch lists and other elements of the project that are still being finalized. A majority of the furnishings have been delivered so we are in good shape to start the year. COVID-19 will require us to hold off on opening the building to the public but it is our hope to provide some opportunities for tours in October.
With the school building coming to completion, we will be shifting our attention to the third phase of the project which is the competition field. The competition field will be built on the site of the former Mt. Ararat High School building. The process for taking down the former Mt. Ararat High School building is well underway and the demolition is expected to be completed in October. At this time we do not anticipate that the demolition of the former high school will impact traffic patterns and such, but if there is a need to close down the road to the middle school and district office at some point when the walls do come down you will be notified.

For drone footage, updates, and other information associated with the high school construction project, please visit any of our school or district websites and look for the following icon:

Each month after the Building Committee meets, the Communications Subcommittee convenes to provide updates which are all posted on the MTA Construction website. If any of you are interested in financially contributing to the project, information about the various fundraising initiatives are posted on this website. It is the generosity and caring of the members of M.S.A.D. No. 75 community that has made this new high school and the associated fields on our campus a reality. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Though at this time we are limiting access to the building due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is our goal to do a ribbon cutting and offer opportunities for tours after we get the school year up and running. More details to come, but meanwhile, please know we are looking forward to welcoming members of our community at some point and sharing the amazing facility that you have helped us create that will enhance teaching and learning for our children and community members for years to come. Again, thank you.
