Morgan Park High School Community Initiative
On Monday, June 10th, Alderman Matt O’Shea will host an open meeting introducing Dr. Carolyn Epps, the new Principal at Morgan Park High School, to residents. The meeting will take place at 7:00 pm in the school auditorium. Together, Alderman O’Shea and Dr. Epps hope to form a community initiative to strengthen the relationship between the school and neighborhood. Too many parents feel that they do not have a viable public high school option for their children. The new school leadership is eager to explore possible solutions to this problem with local families. All students in our community should have access to safe, high quality public schools. Currently, the final phase of a $20 million dollar renovation project is underway at the Morgan Park Campus. Improvements include a new roof, exterior doors, tuck-pointing, and window replacement. The auditorium has been upgraded and is now fully ADA compliant, and the existing mechanical heating system has been replaced. New dehumidifiers and high efficiency hot water heaters have been installed. Earlier this month damaged fencing and several dead trees and weed shrubs were removed from the south parking lot. A new fence is scheduled to be installed this year. Hopefully you can join us on June 10th to view all the new improvements at Morgan Park High School and hear about future plans.
