Robstown HS Students Will be Kicking off the School Year with Construction

ROBSTOWN - The new school year is right around the corner and the students at Robstown High School will be greeted with a lot of construction. Demolition began at the campus last month and construction is expected to last through the school year.

The main English wing, a computer lab, and the quad have all been turned to chunks of concrete. In about a year it will all be transformed. The project follows voter approval of a 12-million dollar bond. Because of construction all English classes have been moved into a building behind the library, and one computer class will be held at Salazar Elementary.

"It's going to be a rough year. We're gonna ask our students to be very patient. But I am sure these are exciting times for Robstown ISD. The school is going to be beautiful," said Robstown ISD Superintendent Maria Vidaurri.

Staff plan to meet Thursday, August 7th, to map out how students will navigate around the construction.
