St. John School building ready for students

Classes will resume at the St. John School at Gifft Hill next Monday in a new steel building at the school’s new campus, according to the St. John Source.  Teachers are reported setting up classrooms defined by prefabricated panels.  Fred Trayser, a school parent and island contractor, directed assembly of the building for a $1 honorarium.  It took nine months. The building cost $65 a square foot to build, the Source reported — an unheard of number for St. John construction projects.
