During the last months of the 2018-2019 school year, the District began to turn over space to the construction contractor in order to begin the demolition phase of the building project. The hope was to complete the vast majority of the work prior to the students returning in September.
The flexibility of the staff, students and community during the various stages of construction has been much appreciated. To begin with, during the last four months of last school year, construction began on the Elementary School kitchen and cafeteria. This required the cafeteria staff to set up a temporary kitchen, as well as have hot meals cooked in the Middle School-High School building and transferred daily to the Elementary School. Even with that disruption, the students continued to enjoy the hot lunches and variety of meals they have become accustomed to receiving.
Summertime was when the bulk of the work took place. Window replacement, flooring, stairs and masonry are just a few of the areas that have been improved. The scope of the project made it extremely challenging for the maintenance crew, custodians and summer helpers to clean the facilities in an organized and systematic manner. In spite of the challenges, and in some cases cleaning the same areas more than once, the staff had the school cleaned, polished and waxed as students and teachers returned.
The building project is not quite complete, and there is still some flexibility required as we continue over the next month. I truly appreciate the positive attitudes from students, community members and staff. As we see the finished products come together, like the Elementary School kitchen and cafeteria and the Project Based Learning room in the High School, it is with the realization that the improvements will make a brighter, more inspiring and safer learning space.
Many thanks to all for the flexibility and extraordinary efforts during the last few months.
