After three years of construction, the Bear River High School is now complete. Students who will be attending school in just a few weeks will be able to enjoy upgraded locker rooms and a beautiful art department.
The third and final phase of construction took about nine months and was completed in mid-July of 2011. This phase consisted of finishing the boys and all the team locker rooms. The old cafeteria and band room were also remodeled into an art suite, complete with art, jewelry and ceramics classrooms. A few loose ends from the previous phases were finalized as well, such as the sign in front of the building and some other signs in the interior.
When asked what this new area will do for the school, Principal Gary Allen said it gives students involved in PE and athletics a nice locker facility. He added, “It finally gives the students a clean and safe place for their [equipment]. The locker rooms were so run down and many of the lockers did not lock. It will be nice for visiting teams to see what we have done, we will be a good host for them.” Before, the restroom facilities were very old and run down, they did not appear to be clean no matter how much cleaning was done, now this is not the case.
