The parking lot was deserted. Classrooms were empty. There was an eerie silence on the last day of April while walking around Encino Crespi. Usually itâ€™s a regular school day bustling with activity. But the coronavirus pandemic has left students and faculty communicating via on line. The main activity was taking place at the $10 million aquatics center under construction adjacent to the football field.
The construction crew wore masks as they worked toward completing a long-awaited project that will include a 50-meter Olympic-size Myrtha pool, boys and girls team rooms and a separate plunge pool that will be used for rehabilitation.
Crespi, joined by its sister school Louisville, hopes to unveil the new facility in August.
â€œItâ€™s really exciting,â€ said Crespi president Ken Foersch. â€œWeâ€™ve been looking forward to cutting the ribbon for a long time. We hope in August to cut the ribbon, to go into the classroom and jump into the pool.â€
