Since October, bad weather has delayed the construction of the new high school by 15-days. That doesn't include the snow received in February.

Superintendent Donald Ford says once they get the excavation complete and the footers poured, he hopes they’ll get back on track.

"We were already on an ambitious schedule of 22-months of completion of this major project," said Dr. Donald Ford, Harrisonburg School Superintendent. "I'm not at all willing to concede that we won't be finished on time, but it's going to take quite an effort on the part of the contractor to do that."

Ford says the weather delays shouldn't affect the school's price tag. Weather delays were built into the contract.

The high school is expected to open Fall 2004.
