In Maryland, the first day of school is about two weeks away for Frederick County Public Schools students, and the new Frederick High School will be opening it’s doors for the first time this year.
“We’re in the process. The custodians are in the process of helping the teachers prepare their rooms for the upcoming school year,” said Frederick High School Custodian Lester Robinson.
Robinson said part of the process is helping teachers get the right supplies to the correct classroom.
“What we’re doing right now, primarily, we’re moving book shelves. We’re moving boxes. We’re assisting with unpacking of the boxes for the upcoming year. We’re doing a lot of cleaning, as that is part of our normal daily operations,” Robinson said.
Officials said while teachers are moving in, contractors are making the final touches.
“The neat thing about this whole transition is we’re getting everything new, so we have a lot of new equipment which is going to help us do our job a lot better,” added Robinson.
All of this is to be prepared when the school bells ring on Sept. 5.
FCPS officials said the old Frederick High School will make way for the new high school’s drive way when it’s demolition is completed.
