Greenon students and staff will move into the district’s new K-12 school on September 7, 2021, at the start of the 2021-2022 school year. Community members will be able to see the new school at an open house from 5-8 p.m. on August 30, 2021.
The new school is located at the northeastern corner of Rebert Pike and Enon-Xenia Road, where Indian Valley Intermediate School is currently located.
The anticipated completion date of the project is April 2021. Construction delays caused by weather and a shortage of available masonry workers due to high demand have adjusted anticipated timelines for completion of the project.
The Board of Education and Administration have decided not to move students during the final months of the school year during state-mandated testing to ensure students have stability for the high-stakes testing.
“On some state tests, students are required by the state of Ohio to obtain a set score to be eligible for promotion to the next grade or graduation,” said Superintendent Brad Silvus. “Because of the potential consequences these tests have for our students, it’s important that we make sure that their preparation and the exams are not impacted by the move. We’re excited to open our new facility with students, but we believe it is important that we act in the best interest of our students.”
Preliminary school calendars for 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 have been posted to the Greenon website to give families ample time to plan for adjustments in the calendar to accommodate construction schedules. Please note that calendars may change.
In 2020-2021, students will begin the school year on August 17, 2020 and end the school year on May 14, 2021. Winter and spring breaks have been shortened to accommodate a mid-May last day of school.
After students and teachers leave for the summer, construction crews will begin the work of preserving the existing Indian Valley gym and demolishing the rest of the building. Roads and parking lots will also be completed over the summer, and students will return to school on September 7, 2021 to a completed campus.
We look forward to welcoming students, staff, families and the community in the new school in the summer of 2021!
