While students and instructors are staying away from the Navasota ISD campuses, work continues on renovations at the high school and junior high campuses and athletic facilities.
Navasota has two ongoing projects — parts of phase 2 of the 2017 bond.
Work on the football stadium began last Monday with the removal of the football field turf and track and the existing scoreboard. Part of the $7 million project includes the installation of a new videoboard and sound system, a new track, new turf — and a safety pad beneath the turf — and the replacement or repair of the stadium elevator.
The goal is to have the field completed by the end of May.
Inside, high school and junior high school gyms will be getting new floors and new bleachers.
The construction crews initially planned on getting small projects done in the schools during spring break, but were able to do more when the district extended the closure, which will be at least through April 10.
