PRINCETON — North Gibson School Corporation has multiple construction projects underway as the school year comes to a close.

Superintendent Brian Harmon updated the school board this week on a few of the projects, including the expansion of Princeton Community Primary School North and the high school tennis courts and bleachers.

Harmon said the PCPS project is ahead of schedule and on budget.

The bleacher project and tennis courts has also started, with work done in both areas.

“If you’ve been through the school grounds you’ll notice about half of the bleachers have already been dismantled,” he said.

Harmon said the old tennis courts have also been demolished, and the land is being prepared.

Harmon said VPS Architecture is working on plans for board review relating to both the agriculture storage building and the modifications to Gil Hodges Field.

Harmon said the firm has been working in coordination with the city on utilities and some of the drainage issues in the area of the ball field that were discussed in earlier talks.

“We’re well on our way to getting some things accomplished,” he said.

Harmon thanked corporation staff members for their work closing out the second half of the school year.

“It’s our hope that we’re going to be back in school in the fall,” he said. “Things may look a little different, we’re not sure at this point, but we’re hopeful that we’ll be back in school with possible modifications.”
