    School began on time in the interim layout that will be in place for the 2018-19 school year.  Building foundations for the new building are about 25% complete and that work continues.  26th street has been closed from Rainier Avenue West to the edge of the temporary parking lot.  This allows students to cross the street without any vehicular traffic and also joins the construction area with the construction staging area.  There have been no complaints about this closure in the week it has been in place.
