A multi-million dollar modernization of Placerita Junior High School began this month as part of the Hart district’s effort to renovate its campuses using funds from Measure V.

With modernization projects completed at Saugus High School, Arroyo Seco Junior High and Canyon High School, the William S. Hart Union High School District has now focused its attention on Placerita Junior High, Hart High School and Sierra Vista Junior High.

Work at Placerita began with new data, electrical, water and sewage lines being run underground throughout the site. Also, five buildings (1100, 1000, 900, 800, and 300) are being prepped for a complete renovation of their interiors.

To alleviate the temporary loss of classroom space, five additional temporary portable buildings have been placed on campus for the duration of the modernization project.

“During the next 12 months, we eagerly anticipate a much-needed renewal of our gymnasium and locker rooms, an update to our multipurpose room, a renewed library facility and a complete overhaul of our administrative building to include a new front entrance to the school site,” Principal Mike Kuhlman said in a statement posted on the Placerita Web site.

Kuhlman asked returning students and staff to be patient while the campus is temporarily disrupted during the modernization. Certain areas of the campus will be fenced off during the project, and therefore traditional traffic patterns and walkways may be blocked.

“I encourage you to look forward to the end result,” he wrote. “I am confident that our beautiful, renewed facility will be worth the effort.”
