The remaining work to be done includes playground installation, roof installation, flooring, gym floor lines and finish as well as moving furniture back into the classrooms.

All of the work is expected to be completed by August 18.

Cost estimates for repairs to the building were estimated at $3-4 million, but an update on the final cost of the project will be available in a couple months once all construction invoices have been filed.
