    New gym on dedication night

    Latest Update: This bigger, better Viking Court was dedicated on Dec. 7, 2018. A new student/gym entryway on the east side of the school was completed at the same time, while new wrestling and weight rooms were opened on the south side of the school. Eight new classrooms on the northwest end of campus opened in September 2018.

    Ginno Construction Co.’s bid of $7,110,000 was the lowest of two bids submitted for the CHS project. Coeur d’Alene-based Ginno built the classroom addition; expanded Viking Court to function as the new competition gym; built a new wrestling room; built a weight room addition; added a new testing and multipurpose room; and constructed the new gymnasium entry on the east side of the school.

    Because bids were higher than anticipated, some non-essential components of the projects were withdrawn to ensure the work can be completed within budget. When all bond projects are completed, the district will determine if contingency funds are sufficient to complete the components withdrawn from the plan. The general construction budget is $5.6 million for the CHS project. The unbudgeted contingency fund is $985,000.
