New science labs ready at Pioneer

Pioneer Central High School students will return to new science classrooms when school resumes Monday.

Part of the district’s $31 million capital project, the 10-classroom addition, will be opening next month. The new space will meet state requirements for classroom sizes and equipment.

Voters approved the project in December 2012. It includes new science labs and music area at the high school, as well as a new sawmill storage area on the agriculture barn/classroom and more agriculture/shop space. The third floor of the Arcade building, which dates back to 1929, will be renovated and updated, and electric service for the high school and middle school campuses will be replaced.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held later in January.
