Move from old to new LHS to begin next week
LAWRENCEVILLE - Over the past 18 months or so people have traveled along James Street watching the new Lawrenceville High School rise out of what had been an agricultural area and take shape.

Now, the construction process is almost complete and school officials are making plans to move into its new facility.

During Monday's monthly Unit 20 school board meeting, Superintendent Charles Stegall said completion is near.

"The punch list is going to start Friday. The architect, engineers and board members, myself and the high school principal will all be up there walking through and marking items that need to be addressed," Stegall said. "We're looking at a real quick turnaround in the next couple of weeks."

Project architect, George Link, of VPS, said grading and seeding continues along the outside of the building, small accessories are being installed, such as restroom fixtures, and some flooring is being completed.

Link also told the board it is anticipated that the project will come in under budget. He said there is still $150,000 of contingency money in the budget.

LHS Principal Paul Higginbotham said Lawrenceville High School will close down the day after the last day of school, on May 29. Moving the high school offices will be the first order of business.

Higginbotham said the plan is to be able to open the office at the new high school by June 7. After that, moving other items from the high school will take place over a four or five day period.

Brandon Stewart, the Unit 20 technology coordinator, reported that the majority of the high school's new computers are expected to arrive this week.

School officials agreed everything will come together rapidly in June.

"It's really a phenomenal facility and I can't wait for the public to see it. We're going to be working on setting up an open house and ribbon cutting, as well," Stegall said.
