Summer Construction Projects at Shaker Heights Schools
Begins the week of June 7
There are several construction projects at Shaker Heights' schools from June 7-August 3. Please be aware that there will be limited parking at the schools while the construction workers are on site.
For safety reasons, there will be no access to the playground at Onaway during the replacement of the asphalt play area and a retaining wall. As an alternative, we suggest families use the play areas at Boulevard or Woodbury.
Please note that the projected time frame for all projects is subject to change due to weather and other variables. The typical work day for operation of heavy equipment will be approximately 7 am to 3:30 pm. Work on asphalt replacement could extend to 6-7 pm.
We expect congestion in and around the High School Oval as the following parking lots will be closed for the summer construction period:
• High School south parking lot
• High School north parking lot
• Onaway Elementary School parking lot
Please plan accordingly if you'll be visiting or picking up/dropping off students at the High School or Onaway. We suggest budgeting an extra 10 minutes for walking from your car to a building. The Administration Building lot will be restricted to building users only.
During the construction period, the SELF and Shaker Heights City Summer Recreation Programs will run according to schedule in the respective buildings. Walk-in routes to the buildings will be identified. Participants and employees should plan accordingly to gain access to the buildings.
Contact the Shaker Heights Schools Business Office with any questions, 216-295-1400. Review this full list of construction projects.
