The halls of Pittsburg High School aren't filled with students this summer, but they are nowhere close to empty.
The contents of a dozen classrooms have been removed to the hallways as the USD 250 maintenance staff works to replace the rooms' original flooring. Some rooms are receiving new carpet, while others are receiving new vinyl tile.
"For most of the classrooms, this is the first time they've had new flooring since the building was first constructed," Maintenance Director Jim Newell said.
Four bathrooms in PHS are also being remodeled this summer, the continuation of a project that began at this time last year.
"We remodeled some of the bathrooms last summer," Newell said, "and now we're getting to four more. They're getting new flooring, new ceramic tile and new stalls."
