Signatures Still Needed Before JFK Opens To The Public


Guam – Minor issues still need to be worked out before the Guam Fire Department will sign an occupancy permit for the new John F. Kennedy High School campus.

 Acting Public Information Officer Ed Flores told PNC that fire officials were on campus today for an inspection. While Flores did not elaborate he said minor issues need to be corrected for safety reasons.  After GFD signs off on the permit for phases three and four of the building, the Department of Public Works will inspect the structure before the permit can be issued.

The Department of Public Health and Social Services on Friday cleared all areas of the school except the gymnasium and cafeteria. The Guam Environmental Protection Agency is also in the process of inspecting the water system.

Once the permit is issued school employees begin moving supplies into that portion of the campus. A ribbon cutting ceremony for the new campus is scheduled for Saturday August 20th.
