This May, the District began a significant remodel on the Crater High School gymnasium. Thanks to passage of the 2019 school bond, a 2.5-million-dollar state seismic grant, and funding from the student investment account, the CHS gym will receive various upgrades over the coming months.
These upgrades will extend the building’s life while providing a more safe and comfortable space for student athletes and our community. The major projects that will occur include the installation of heating and air conditioning, structural reinforcement for earthquake preparedness, locker room/restroom remodeling, and much needed improvements to mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.
“We are thankful for the opportunity to make these much needed and appreciated upgrades to the Crater High School Gym,” shared David Heard, CHS Athletic Director. “Our gym is a resource not only for student athletes, but many community programs and we look forward to continuing sharing our beloved gym with the entire Central Point community.”
The CHS gym will be closed throughout the duration of the summer with an anticipated reopening timeline of November 2022. In an effort to minimize the impact to student and community programs during the closure, the District is prioritizing improvements to the 2 Scenic Middle School gyms, including the installation of adjustable basketball hoops and upgraded volleyball net/pole systems. The District will also utilize the gym at Central Point Elementary and the new gym at Jewett Elementary to help mitigate the impact of the construction schedule.
The District is thankful for the community’s support as we strive to provide safe and healthy facilities for generations of students to come. You can access updates about the progress of the Crater High School Gym online at www.CentralPointSchoolBond.org.
