The construction site for the new Evergreen High School facility was vandalized on May 23. A water hose was inserted into duct work, flooding a significant portion of the structure. Insulation and drywall sustained water damage. Clean-up started immediately after the damage was discovered. 

Contractors are assessing the extent of the damage and any impact to the construction schedule. More information is anticipated in a couple of weeks. 

Insurance coverage will minimize the financial impact to the district for clean-up, mitigation, and reconstruction costs. The contractor is taking additional security measures.

The general contractor, Cornerstone GCI, says they will do their best to complete the project on time. This will depend on the extent of the damage. The facility is scheduled to open for students in September 2025.

The King County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.

[An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the date of the vandalism was May 31. We apologize for any confusion due to our writing error.]
