Referendum Construction Updates

Work In Progress

Exciting things are happening at East…

Have you seen the updates that are coming to East High School? Get up to speed by checking out the East Referendum 2020 website. The MMSD Building Services staff gave an update at the April 12, 2021, Board meeting on the status of the projects funded by the referendum. (The referendum update begins at 1:22:36).

We are so proud to be a part of a community that believes in the value of providing an innovative, equity-driven educational experience for our students in well-maintained facilities for generations to come. We appreciate your patience as we begin our construction journey. Constructions is scheduled to begin in May. These projects have many detailed schedules such as abatement, permits, furniture, start-up and testing, etc so all dates are for general reference only and are subject to change.

As we move through this process we will continue to keep you informed of the exciting changes that may impact your environment. You can also view construction updates and timelines on the MMSD website.

Join our East High United Purgolder Parent Meeting on Wednesday, April 20th at 6:30pm via Zoom for East specific updates from Interim Principal Mikki Smith and other district and construction partner staff.


Fall 2022 Update


Various construction phases have seen immense progress over the past month in anticipation of students and staff returning for the fall semester. Find out more.


Over the past few weeks, construction crews continue to make great headway at East High School – especially with the new elevator addition in the welcome center lobby! Inside the school, new masonry and steel stud walls are being constructed in multiple phases, along with a plethora of new mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection (MEPF) infrastructure. This work is setting the stage for the numerous interior finish elements such as painting, floor finishes, casework, and ceramic tiling to be installed in the coming weeks. On the exterior, crews are nearly complete with the underground utility work that will enable the new MEPF systems to be brought online throughout the project.
