Crisfield High finishing construction for its back building

In Somerset County, one high school is seeing some major improvements to kick off its school year.

Since last spring, Crisfield High has seen construction take place in the back part of their school, but now their hard hats are about to come off.

The Head Start building attached to Crisfield High saw some damage from Hurricane Sandy back in 2012.

But they were able to revamp it with some new classrooms and common areas.

Head Start is a federal program where local communities support the mental, social, and emotional development of a child from birth to the age five.

Also being updated, the athletic building. A new weight room along with new locker rooms will be the newest assets to the school. They haven't been updated it for more than 40 years.

Their focus was to get the Head Start building up and running for the beginning of school.

Currently, they are setting up and will begin bringing in students next week.

As for the athletic building, they are striving to have that completed by the end of November.
