Native American remains unearthed

On July 9, 2009, construction workers unearthed the remains of a native American whilst working on the new gymnasium, and construction was halted for five days. Archeologists claim the main camp was located six miles away and that finding a skeleton remains such a distance from the camp is unusual; however, similar remains were discovered during repairs of the nearby I-680 freeway.[4] 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.
