  • Info   High School Roof Replacement
      The roof at Hershey High School is due for a replacement and work to install a new one will begin in May and extend into the summer.  The project is being managed to minimize disruption to day-to-day education and activities at the building.  However, there will be construction equipment and heavy machinery at the high school, especially during material delivery and removal.  The removal of the existing roof ballast material will create some additional noise, including during evenings and some weekends.  This is an unavoidable part of the project and the district will work with the contractors in charge of the process to keep construction-related sounds to a minimum.
