Late-Summer Update

Posted by Adam Spina on 8/4/2022 4:05:00 PM

The buildings are busy with activity as final preparations are made for the return of instructional staff and students in a couple of weeks. The majority of the larger summer projects are still scheduled to be completed either just before or soon after the start of classes. These include new boilers at the middle school, secure entrances at the preschool and Discovery Elementary, parking lot and driveway repairs, and new HVAC in the Explorer Elementary gymnasium. Unfortunately, the Discovery Elementary roof replacement is only half complete due to a materials shortage. More information about the remainder of the roof installation will be shared when it is available. 

A number of other smaller-scale projects have been completed or will be in the near future. These include painting at the fitness center, new bottle filler installation, additional security cameras and door locks, classroom door barriers, new carpet and furniture in select locations, additional picnic tables/outdoor seating, and new food service equipment. 

I am immensely proud of our custodial and maintenance teams for their dedication and attention to detail over the summer. Their accomplishments are sometimes overlooked during the excitement of returning to school. They deserve recognition for their commitment and hard work. Our community can be proud of the condition of the buildings and grounds; our educators and students are set up for a very successful 2022-2023 school year. 

There are several employment opportunities available throughout the District. If you or someone you know is looking for full-time or part-time employment, please visit our human resources webpage for more information.
