In the Spotlight - 04-17-2023 - Gym Project Progress
The elevator shaft for the old NH Carpenter Gym has been constructed and is under roof. The brick veneer has been laid, and is ready for doors and windows. The elevator itself will be one of the last installations.
Foundations have been poured and work has begun on the 3rd elevator shaft which is located in the Dixon Auditorium.
This project in its totality is the largest step ECS has ever taken in making the campus of Elkin High School handicap accessible to all students, staff and guests. The addition of the second gym will also allow both middle and high school students the opportunity to receive health and physical education instruction and participate in athletic practices and competitions simultaneously. The projected completion date is Fall of 2023.
The Elkin City Schools Board of Education is certainly thankful for the support of the Surry County Board of Commissioners for helping us realize our vision.
