Progress on the construction of the new Highline High School is going well, and the school district this week released new videos and photos.
And yes, that is the original terracotta from the old school’s historic front entrance, which was salvaged and re-installed by Pioneer Masonry.
“The new school continues on track to open this fall, thanks to crews working overtime and despite changes to work practices to respond to COVID-19,” the district said.
The opening of school is still on track for September 2021.
