During the most recent Fayetteville School Board meeting, officials with Nabholz Construction and Crafton Tull architects reported on the progress made at the Fayetteville High School construction site. The two said the roofs are almost complete on both the southeast and southwest quads, and that crews are working to put both buildings “in the dry” so that interior work can continue, regardless of the weather.

Speaking of FHS, the district posted a slideshow of photos taken during a tour of the construction site in late January.

And speaking of the district, kindergarten registration for the 2012-13 school year at all FPS elementary schools begins at 8 a.m. Thursday, March 29.
