Construction workers are making progress on what will be the entrance to the new competition gymnasium for high school and middle school students.

Gym opening may be a bit delayed

Superintendent said middle school ‘academic areas’ will be ready for students

New Hampton’s new middle school and industrial technology and vocational agriculture center will be ready for students Aug. 23, when the 2019-20 school year begins, the school district’s top administrator said on Friday.

The cafeteria and the gymnasium, though, may open just a tad later than expected.

“We knew the cafeteria would be nip and tuck with the issues we had with the fire marshal,” Superintendent Jay Jurrens said, referring to an issue that cropped up this spring about windows in the cafeteria, “and we’re working on the gym but we may have to play some games in the old gym for just a little bit.”
