Construction work is gearing up at Pine-Richland High School, and that means parking in front of the school will be limited midweek.
A portion of the parking lot will be closed off and marked by barrels, but the drop-off and pick-up areas will remain open, according to Communications Director Rachel Hathhorn.
Motorists are encouraged to be cautious and allow extra time to navigate the parking lot, the announcement said. The school is located at 700 Warrendale Road in Pine Township.
Pine-Richland High School is undergoing a $32 million expansion and renovation that is expected to be completed by the fall of 2012. Work began last year after contracts were awarded in October.
The school's kitchen will close May 9 so construction can begin on its expansion.
Hot meals, hot sandwiches, grab-and-go sandwiches, the salad bar and other items will be available to students in the school's atrium, the announcement said.
The cafeteria is expected to be back in full operation in time for the start of the 2011-12 school year.
The Pine-Richland High School campus will close starting June 13 as crews conduct site work during the summer. The Warrendale Road entrance and the front parking lot will close, along with the pool and fields. Staff parking will be limited.
PRHS Stadium will remain open; motorists will be able to access it from the Logan Road entrance by Pine-Richland Middle School.
The campus will re-open at the start of the 2011-2012 school year.
