Saunders Middle School - Roof Construction begins on Friday, 6/20/2014

The Saunders Middle School parking lot (large 120 spots) will be closed beginning on Friday 6/20/14, due to the major roof reconstruction being completed during the summer vacation (June 20, 2014 - August 25, 2014).
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you or your organization if you have previously reserved space including the use of our parking lots.

Due to the size of the construction job, we may not be able to plan for lack of air conditioning (AC) or debris which may fall off the roof (outside) or through the ceiling (inside).

The construction hours will be from 6AM-6PM.

The main parking lot will be closed for the duration of the summer 6/20-8/25/14.
