Greetings Colonials!

We would like to provide you with an update on our exciting renovation project at Colonial Heights High School.  We are rapidly moving forward with construction on track through each successful phase of the project!  Our students and staff are readily adapting to teaching and learning in new spaces due to our construction.

It is important to emphasize the end product of our renovation that will vastly enhance and modernize the facilities of Colonial Heights High School.  We are adding on to our Fine Arts wing, and remodeling the existing classes within that part of the building.  Upon project completion we will have a new band room, new choir room, a modern theater arts space, updated and renovated art classrooms, updated health classroom space, and more useful spaces surrounding our auditorium to support world class performing arts productions.  The construction project on the Fine Arts area is well underway.

The renders of the finished addition showcase a beautiful and functional space that will be a source of inspiration for students and faculty alike. The large windows and high ceilings will allow natural light to flood the space, creating a bright and inviting atmosphere that is conducive to creativity and learning. The addition of the Fine Arts wing will undoubtedly be a great asset to the high school, providing students with the resources and facilities they need to pursue their artistic passions and develop their talents. Overall, this construction project is a positive development for the school community and will have a lasting impact on the students and faculty for years to come.

The remodeling of the front portion of the main building of CHHS is about to begin.  The front entryway of the school will be extended to create a security vestibule.  The completed renovated front section of the building will include a modern main office and attendance area, a more useful and accessible clinic space, updated counseling and office spaces, new classroom spaces to include two student collaboration rooms, and two new functional academic areas to provide additional support and modern facilities for our students with disabilities.  An enhanced and improved front entryway will allow for a revitalized way to showcase our student accomplishments, trophies, awards, and achievements.   

To facilitate the construction on the front of the building, beginning on Tuesday, April 10th, the main entrance of CHHS will be closed off with construction fencing.  The main entrance of the building, including our secure buzzing-in system, will be relocated to the set of doors approximately 100 ft to the right of our main entrance.  Students and parents/guardians will utilize these doors in the same manner in which we have always used our front entrance.  We will have signage for parents/guardians indicating where they can enter at.

In addition to the front entrance being closed off, rooms 1-5 in the front hallway will be relocated within the main campus and tech center and these rooms will be closed off for renovation.  The front hallway will still be accessible for students to use to travel throughout the building.

We are excited about our upgrades and additions to our building.  The finished product will be a wonderful addition to the high achieving and successful high school and school division that we know and love!  As we navigate the challenges of construction, as always, we appreciate your patience and support. We will continue to provide updates and communication related to construction through school messengers, our website, and social media.
