Native American remains unearthed[edit]

On July 9, 2009, construction workers unearthed the remains of a Native American while working on the new gymnasium, and construction was halted for five days. Archaeologists claim the main camp was located six miles away and that finding skeletal remains such a distance from the camp was unusual; however, similar remains were discovered during repairs of the nearby I-680 freeway.[8] More remains were unearthed soon after. In all, the remains of more than two dozen Native Americans were found. It is believed that the location was a burial ground.
