Students from storm-damaged Ferrucci Junior High to go to Emerald Ridge
On Wednesday morning, buses will pick up Ferrucci Junior High students at their regular bus stops and take them to Emerald Ridge High School. Students who normally walk to school or are dropped-off by parents will take a shuttle bus from Ferrucci Junior High School to Emerald Ridge High. These same students will be returned to Ferrucci Junior High at the end of the school day.
Following last week’s rain storm, wall board has been removed between classrooms to facilitate better air flow. Water damaged ceiling tiles and wallboard have been removed. All air in the building has been “scrubbed” (replaced with clean air) using industrial quality fans and ventilation systems. However, the air quality is not acceptable, according to industrial hygienists.
Students will follow a modified schedule on Wednesday. September 11 is Fair Day in the Puyallup School District. All students are released 3 ¼ hours early from school on this day.
