According to Principal Ken Chargualaf, while he hasn't received official notice from the Governor's Office or the Department of Public Works, he says there are talks that a ground breaking will scheduled for sometime next week.

He said, "I know that I have received unofficial information from one of our teachers that September 2 is allocated as a date and time to have a groundbreaking at the Upper Tumon John F. Kennedy High School. But that's just one of my teachers, so I'm not too sure where he got that information from; but yes, we're hoping to break ground in the first week of September."

During a signing ceremony on a bill that would help move the construction of JFK forward, the Guam Economic Development Authority had said it was confident that groundbreaking for a new campus could take place in the first week of September.
