Transition is the keyword as Middletown City School District's construction project approaches Spring. Middletown High School's Kitchen will close around March first. Hot meals will be served to students until the end of the academic year. The district has decided to close the MHS kitchen early so renovations can be completed and the kitchen will be ready to go by next school year. Both the majority of the seating areas and the kitchen will be done prior to the start of school. Office staff will begin moving into their temporary locations in April. The new Middletown High School Office space will be ready in August. Teachers will also begin to transition as the new spaces become available for students.
At the start of next school year, we will have six of the new science labs and twenty newly renovated classrooms ready for use. For athletics and PE classes, the Paul Walker Gym will be available at the start of the year and the new Wade E. Miller Arena opens shortly after in December. This Spring, the MHS Softball and Baseball teams transition to their new home fields at Lefferson Park.
