Construction on the new HES campus has been constant but at a much slower pace than anticipated. Langston Construction has informed HISD that the building will not be ready for occupancy by our first day of school on August 25. The administration and school board, while stressing to Langston the need to complete construction in a timely manner, is focused on providing the most effective learning environment with child safety and welfare at the forefront. In consideration of the above, HES will begin the school year by continuing to conduct classes in the existing main building. Most classes and services will be held in the main building with a few fourth grade classes being held in HMS.
It is our expectation that the new HES campus will be completed in late September to early October. We will continue to work with Langston to determine the date for occupancy.
