Students, faculty and staff returning to Tuesday can expect relatively cooler weather next week (now, that’s a relief!) but they’ll also find their access on campus somewhat hampered by construction.
Scattered across the school compound, but especially near the quad, construction has been underway during the summer break. Areas have been fenced off, the landscape ripped open, and mounds of gravel lie in heaps next to heavy machinery. (See photos.)
“It’s ongoing,” Assistant Principal Koh Ikeda said of the construction Thursday, explaining that it stems from an LAUSD school construction bond measure several years ago “that has now come to Eagle Rock.”
No new classrooms or buildings are being constructed—although “that would be nice,” said Ikeda, adding that the construction is limited to landscape repairs.
“There will be pathways, and students can have access throughout the campus,” he said.
