Gettysburg High School construction project to resume as classes begin | Local News

Gettysburg Area High School students will return to classes on Aug. 23 in a building that is still under construction but safe, Principal Jeremy Lusk told the school board last week.

The high school is undergoing a $17.9 million renovation project, primarily driven by a $16.5 million heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) overhaul. The board approved the project in January. It also includes a sprinkler system nitrogen purge, new toilet partitions and repairs to the library steps.
