Komachin's Building History

In 2011, energy-efficient lighting upgrades were completed in the gym utilizing state energy grant funds. A new roof was completed in 2016. In 2020, a full modernization project with phases 1 & 2 to be completed in 2022, followed by a phase 3 classroom addition in 2023.
