School construction to be done in June

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Construction at the new Musselman High School and Potomack Intermediate School has fallen a bit behind, but construction supervisor Don Zepp said the projects will still be finished on schedule.

Construction on both the high school and middle school will be complete in June, Zepp told the Berkeley County School Board Monday night.

At the new high school, the gymnasium floors are finished, locker room partitions and toilets are in and workers are putting tile on the second floor and installing lights, Zepp said.

At Potomack, the inside walls are up and windows will be installed in three weeks, he said.

Interior projects - such as moving in furniture, waxing floors and hanging blinds in the windows - will be done before school starts in August, Zepp said.

The addition of two new buildings will make room for more students in a county with a 13 percent population growth since 1992.

The old Musselman High School will be converted into a middle school and the old middle school will become an intermediate school, likely for third- and fourth-graders, said Mary Jo Brown, spokeswoman for Berkeley County Schools.

On April 2, the school board will award bids for the old high school's renovation project, which is expected to be completed by the beginning of the 1999-2000 school year.
