Construction work was in full swing Tuesday at Superior High School. As the first day of school edges closer, assistant principal Steve Olson said he's seen daily and even hourly transformations at the building.

Teachers returning to Superior High School this week are in for a shock. The building is not the way they left it. Asbestos tiles have been removed from floors, leaving waxed concrete in their wake. Former science labs boasted sand floors last week dotted with new pipes. By the end of the 2017-2018 school year, the area will be the school's new kitchen. A corner of the cafeteria was being outfitted as temporary storage space for musical instruments last week. The nearby staff lounge was being transformed into joint office space for music teachers.
