New lights on Whittier Ave.!! Click below to read the January 2006 Whittier Daily News article.  The construction began the day after Graduation June 22, 2007.  The lights were supposed to be functional before the start of school in September, 2007.  They were actually active in early 2013.
The Administration Building re-opened in 2007 after a year of renovation.  Any questions regarding construction can be addressed to the Business & Activities Office x2010.  You may have noticed the large LETTERS painted on the sides of the buildings.  These LETTERS are to help emergency personnel.  These LETTERS were incorporated into the classroom schedules in July 2006.
