The general public will have a chance to view the newly remodeled Decorah High School at an open house Sunday, Sept. 8, from 1-3 p.m.
At Monday's meeting, the Decorah School Board, discussed the event, which will unveil the $20.7 million project to the community.
During the meeting, District officials discussed the format for the open house, which will likely give people the option of either a guided or self-guided tour with handouts. Another option will be to post staff throughout the building to answer questions.
Building and Grounds Manager Greg Schaller said the contractors had had a "pretty productive month."
"All the asbestos has been abated. The company came in on a Friday and was done by Sunday. By Wednesday, we had air samples back," said Schaller.
Schaller said the terrazzo is currently being laid in front of the gym. It will include a likeness of a Viking.
"It'll be pretty cool," said Schaller in response to the Board's queries about the Viking.
With regard to the street project in front of the building, Schaller said there has been quite a bit of progress. He said Wicks Construction of Decorah is doing the concrete work and will try to finish before Nordic Fest.
