“Dear PoP,

They’ve been renovating that old school building at Sherman and Kenyon for a while now. Any idea what they’re turning it into?”

This is going to be the new home of the Cesar Chavez Public Charter School. We looked at it back in January. At the time the Principal, Andrew Touchette, wrote:

“it is still our plan to occupy the building in early August. Our students (about 230 in grades 6, 7 and 8) begin school on Monday, August 24.”

When I walked by this past weekend, the scaffolding was new to me and I saw workers inside. Think they’ll be done by Aug. 24th?
