The new Shorewood High School is now open for business. The main office, ASB office and counseling office will be open from 7:30am to 12 noon and 1 to 3:30pm. Visitors may park in the south parking lot (accessed off North 170th) or on Linden Avenue North across from the school. 

Inside, preparations continue for opening of the entire building for the first day of school on Wednesday, Sept. 4. Orientation for new freshmen was held Wednesday, Aug. 28.

  • Final cleaning continues in classrooms following ceiling tile installation.
  • Furniture is being installed throughout the building.
  • Main and auxiliary gym wood floor is installed and striping completed.
  • Topsoil is being placed and planting continues around the front entrance and south courtyard.
  • Demolition of the former Shorewood building is ongoing, with crews continuing to move south. The site of the old building will be replaced by parking, athletic fields and tennis courts.

Shorewood will host a community open house and dedication for the new building from 1 to 4pm on Saturday, Oct. 12, with a program at 1:30pm in the gymnasium.

This looks phenomenal. I drove by there the other day, and marveled at all of the upheaval. It's great to see that it's almost all done and that the school finally fits the attendance of today. Back in my kids' day, the largest room could only hold about half of the student body. I'm hoping that the Shoreline Area News offers some coverage of this event, it should be great!
