Horicon Referendum School Construction On Schedule

(Horicon) The Horicon School District superintendent says progress is being made on the referendum construction at the high school. Last spring, voters approved a $22.9-million-dollar question to building a new elementary school next to the high school where secure entrances are being installed. Residents also approved spending $3.9-million dollars to address infrastructure needs at the junior/senior high school. Rich Apple says there is still a lot of work that needs to be done before the upcoming school year that includes finishing up the parking lots and sidewalks. Apple says there should be no lost classroom time due to the referendum construction. He says the days will be a bit longer but the last day of school is still scheduled for the Friday before Memorial Day. Apple says work should be completed by the third week of August next year. He says the district will hold an open house for students and parents to stop by and see all the new changes.
