Athletic Center Construction Updates

We broke ground on the new
Athletic Center on March 9, 2020!

New building opens June, 2021!

Construction has begun on our new Athletic Center! We are upgrading and expanding our 55-year old Gym with a new community gathering space, athletics offices, and two gyms.

This exciting growth and change on our campus will require adjustments from all of us as traffic becomes a bit more congested and parking becomes more limited. We ask for everyone’s patience as we adjust to this temporary “new normal” as we continue to improve our campus.

Traffic Flow and Parking

Although morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up routines will stay the same, the lower parking lot (behind the gym) will be made smaller by the increased footprint of the expanded Athletic Center and construction staging. As such, the north side of the lower lot will need to accommodate two-way traffic. We expect this to be a very congested area at the end of the school day, so it will be a good place to avoid if you don’t need to be there.

The 58 parking spaces we added to campus this past summer (adjacent to Morris House and along Vermont St.) will help minimize the loss but we will temporarily lose 70+ parking spaces during construction.

We will manage student parking on campus by limiting it to juniors and seniors (no sophomores).

Please consider using existing OES bus transportation routes, carpooling, or taking Tri-Met.
