Local schools receive summer upgrades prior to new academic year

Eastern Alamance High School received several improvements this summer as part of the Alamance-Burlington School System’s annual series of summer upgrades and rehabilitation projects. EAHS received new flooring in its Media Center and Main Office, as well as in the lobby adjacent to Tal Jobe Gymnasium. The school also received new landscaping in the form of trees and shrubs in front of the Media Center, and bushes and mulching in front of the school’s main entrance.

Over the summer, the Alamance-Burlington School System typically undergoes a series of heavy renovations and work across its 36 schools. 

Multiple schools within Mebane were among the local ABSS facilities that received updates and renovations in June and July, leading up to the start of the 2019-2020 academic year for traditional-calendar schools on Monday, August 26. 

While South Mebane Elementary School was the recipient of new paint throughout its halls this summer, Garrett Elementary School received new flooring in several of its classrooms.

Eastern Alamance High School received the most improvements over the summer of any schools in Mebane, with new floors installed in the school’s Media Center, as well as the Main Office and in the lobby adjacent to Tal Jobe Gymnasium. There was also work conducted in the school’s air ducts, as well as new landscaping. The new landscaping includes shrubs, trees, and mulch in front of EAHS’s Media Center, as well as bushes and mulch in front of the all-brick sign at the school’s entrance. 

Pleasant Grove Elementary School also had some heavy work done this summer, as the school’s classrooms were modernized and fully renovated. EAHS and Pleasant Grove are scheduled to get many more improvements over the next few years, as the ABSS school bond referendum funds begin to be deployed and put to work.
