Inside the gutted MTS building

Sam Leon Lazo, Student Journalist

Hello MTS staff, students, and families. Today I have information regarding the state of the MTS Secondary building. According to Mr. Fondow, they have started demolition at the back portion of the school. He is working with fire and security companies on creating a system to ensure the safety of the school building.

As you can see in the photos, taken by Mr. Fondow, the school looks bare. There are very few walls left. I couldn’t even recognize one of the rooms in the photos because the only thing remaining was the frame of the room. They seem to have gutted most of the space in order to build something new. 

Luckily, it seems like construction will be completed some time this spring and the plans are to officially open by the beginning of next school year. Staff may be able to begin setting up their offices and classrooms during the summer. I’m excited to see how the construction turns out and what the new school will look like!
