CKHS new gym

The end of the school year is fast approaching! At this time just three years ago, architects were still developing designs for our major projects. In a few short months, we’ll complete the biggest of the projects we’ve promised to our students, staff and community.

But our work isn’t done yet! Design and planning for several other projects is underway, which you’ll see below. And critical repairs will continue throughout our district.
