GEHR Superintendent Delays the Opening of Oakcrest High School Again

The first day of school at Oakcrest High School has been delayed again.  In an email sent by Superintendent John Keenan late Wednesday evening, the day before staff was to report, he stated, "Regretfully, due to continued construction delays and scheduled inspections, we must further delay the start of school for Oakcrest Staff and Students."

Faculty was originally to report on September 1st after the first day of school was delayed for the first time. 

According to Keenan, Faculty and Staff  will now report on Tuesday, September 6th at 7:15 a.m. Students will now report to Homeroom on Wednesday, September 7th at 7:25 a.m.
"We are all trying our best to move things along.  This is a temporary inconvenience to some necessary permanent solutions" Keenan said.

Workers continue to push through the mountains of construction still left to be completed in order for the school to open.  At a time where the Board still has not settled a contract with the teachers, the delayed construction will ultimately cost the District additional money and time in payroll for staff that can not enter the building to work.
