KENDALL – Contractors will be busy this summer giving the Kendall Jr./Sr. High School a new look, especially with the roof.

Students, teachers and staff will return to a school in September that has a much more appealing look that allows more existing light in the building, said Julie Christensen, the school district superintendent.

This rendering shows how the new main entrance will look at the Kendall Jr./Sr. High School.

Kendall residents approved a $25 million capitol project in May 2013. Most of that work happened last summer. The revamp of the main entrance at the junior-senior high school is one of the final pieces of the construction project.

In addition to improved aesthetics, the new entrance will provide an enclosed place for students giving students a safe and dry spot while they are waiting before or after school, Christensen said.

Contractors will also work on bathrooms in the elementary school and remove some asbestos tiling over the summer.
