Liberty High School undergoes construction

Liberty High School students returned to school Sept. 4 in the midst of heavy construction, after the passing of the Issaquah School District’s estimated $219 million bond in April.

The bond will help modernize classrooms and common areas, according to the district website.

The process began after school was closed for the summer; the commons was demolished, and several new portable classrooms were brought to campus to serve as temporary homes for some English and foreign language classes, as well as administration and counseling offices.

Music classes are also being held in the portables while the performing arts center is finished. It is yet to be determined where Liberty’s Patriot Players will perform the fall play, “Snow Angel,” while the performing arts center is under construction.

In the meantime, students are learning to live with new challenges and inconveniences.

“At first, it was hard to focus on school because of the excessive noise, but now I’ve learned to shut it out and stay tuned into class,” Liberty senior Danny Stockman said.

It remains to be determined when construction will conclude, but until then, students will adapt.

    Veronica, I think you should give your opinion on the A/B block schedule that may disappear next year. I hope you had a positive experience, and would like to see it continue for other Liberty students. We need a groundswell of support for it, and a article by you would certainly help.
