WAPATO, Wash.-- Mild winter weather is helping crews stay on top of construction at Wapato High School.
The $47-million project is still more than a year away from being completed, but district officials say they're happy with how it's turning out so far.
Along with expanded athletic facilities, and better technology, the new high school will also be more secure, keeping students safer.
"Students will not have to exit the building to get to classes. We'll have access control limited to about five major entrances," said Assistant Superintendent, Dan Murray.
The district is holding an open house to keep the public informed on the progress.
That community forum is next Wednesday, January 16th at 6:30pm, in the high school cafeteria.
