Ramstad Not Ready For Fall

Posted: Updated:

School officials in Minot had hoped the new Eric Ramstad Middle School being built on north hill would be ready to go come the start of the school year this fall...

It has now become obvious that goal won't be met.

Superintendent Mark Vollmer says delays have pushed the project back about 60 days -- so the Minot Auditorium will once again house Ramstad at the start of the next school year.

Other building projects around the district -- like the new Longfellow, Lewis and Clark, and Jim Hill too -- will be ready to go come the first day of the year.

Ramstad students will just have to wait unfortunately...but only a few extra months...

(Mark Vollmer - MPS Superintendent) "The decision was made to wait until 100% completion of the building and that will happen in mid to early November and the idea would be the school will take off the entire week of Thanksgiving and that will be our move in time so when the students return after the break they will be in the new Eric Ramstad."

The school board must approve the plan later this month -- and also approve a starting date for the school year next year.

The plan is to begin before Labor Day.
