the back of your pickup is he said Displaying a gun in a way that caus es fear in the public however can make a person subject to prosecution he said Students attending New Braunfels High School may be a little cramped when school starts in August How ever administrators predict that the construction of additional classrooms should be completed by the time stu dents return from the Christmas break New Braunfels Independent School District is building 11 additional class rooms above the addition built in 1986 Construction plans include two stair wells an elevator and sprinkler sys tems throughout the building Jim MacDonald New Braunfels Independent School District Con struction Coordinator said the project which is currently about a week ahead of schedule should be completed by the second week in December The Christmas break will then be used to move everything into the rooms so they can be fully operational by the rime the students return Any possible delays due to weather have already been figured into this time schedule he said The only thing that would slow them down now is not being able to get the material But the contractor knows in enough time to work around said MacDonald Weve timed it so construction workers and students wont have to come in contact with each Jim MacDonald construction coordinator Lonnie Curtis NBISD Assistant Superintendent of Finance said the project is running about over the expected cost The increase is a result of general prices being more than what was expected and not because of change orders Curtis said this is actually normal and somewhat expected Its because of an increase in the cost of mechanical and electrical equip ment and having to do a little more with the electrical equipment than we said MacDonald The exterior of the buildings should be completed by the end of the sum mer as well as any work that needs to be done in the groundlevel classrooms The only real work needing to be done on the existing classrooms is addition al sprinklers This should eliminate most if not all of the inconvenience of the students said Curtis Principal John Turman said the only inconvenience the students may encounter is a restric tion on the number of accesses from the outside MacDonald said NBISD adminis trators and the contractors worked hard on the timing of the project so the stu dents would be affected as little as pos sible People arent used to being on con struction sites and we dont want them on construction sites The closer they get to the site the safer we want to make said Its been planned to the second Weve timed it so construction workers and students wont have to come in contact with each Turman said the buildings may be crowded for the first couple of months however classes will progress as usu al He said the classrooms will be in use at all times and there will be floater teachers These teachers will not have their own classrooms Instead they will use the rooms that are vacant due to a teachers break These teachers will be ones that do not have a full academic load such as coaches and activity sponsors and newly hired teachers Turman said It hasnt been an inconvenience so far and I dont see
