Well done Black Diamond! We completed our move to JJ Smith, our home for the 2016-2017 school year while the new school is built. Thank you staff, teachers, principal, technology crew and facilities technicians along with everyone else who worked through the weekend of June 25 to finalize the well orchestrated move.

Enumclaw School District teams have worked efficiently to relocate portables via trailers from the Black Diamond site to the gravel student lot at Enumclaw High School. To be most efficient with the budget, we are moving the existing Black Diamond portables to be used as classrooms at EHS through the construction process.

The District is excited to welcome General Contractor BNCC to Black Diamond this week. Mobilization efforts include fencing around the perimeter and adding several trailers for construction purposes. Please check back for photos and weekly updates.
