Bond money gives FMHS upgrades

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- District 51 School Board voted to approve $8 million for renovations at Fruita Monument High School.

The money would go toward construction improvements that D51 officials say would make the school much safer, and enclose parts of the outdoor campus.

School officials say as of now, there are too many access points and doors around the campus, and a new entrance, and central corridor could help keep students safe.

"Over the decades, buildings have been added to this campus, this campus has been added onto, and added onto, so we have a very sprawling campus. It creates some safety concerns, as we try to minimize points of entry for people," said FMHS Principal, Todd McClaskey.

Principal McClaskey said the school currently has about 60 exterior doors.
