Parking Lot Renovations

Vendor Registration Website

Yes we will be complete with the interior H.S./M.S. Renovations before the start of class.  I will admit it will be a creative and difficult finish but we will make it. We have been firmly reminding the trades about the obligation they took on with our short construction schedule and have been met with most of them cooperating fully.  We will be slowly finishing areas off the next couple weeks but slow progress is always better than no progress. I have placed dates on the chalkboard outside the main office and plan on sticking to those interior dates without fail and we will hit the exterior ones as close as the weather will allow. 

We are at a complete standstill on the track due to weather and I will insist that we do not rush the paving of the track just to meet a deadline.  We have time to get it complete before football but not before school.  From last Wednesday’s rain it was still wet in spots as of Saturday so today’s rain does not help the cause.  We are penciled in to pave it Thursday but that will depend on if it is dry enough. Again we must not rush this as we only get one shot to get it correct. I would say Monday the 19th would be a more appropriate day.

The parking lot will be ready to pave late in the week next week or at the latest we are currently slated to pave on Monday August 26th.

We are turning over the kitchen on August 20th

We are installing M.S. Carpet Monday August 19th.

Items for you to take a look at and resolve.

  1. Long Jump and Pole Vault Pits need to be moved out of existing concessions building.
  2. Middle School Hallways need to be clear of any and all items so we can strip the carpeting.  We can have stuff back in once carpet is up until towards the end when we install the new carpet.
  3. Remind staff that plastic barriers need to be left up so we can control the dust from spreading.  I know it is inconvenient to have to walk around but we are making a mess and need it to stay contained.

To pour the long jump or to not pour the long jump, that is the question. OK…That’s enough reference to Hamlet. We are moving along at a nice pace with our interior work and I anticipate this to continue as we demo through the areas.  It is my understanding that there will be a decision made tomorrow with the field events and that will allow us to move forward with track work and ease my mind about our progress outside. Roofing operations are nearing completion at Primary and South Walnut and then we will shift to the Middle School.  Weather permitting we will wrap up membrane operations at both Primary and South Walnut by Friday.

Concrete walks and drives are being pulled as we speak in the loading dock area and Southwest is working on re-grading for the new drive and walks. By the end of next week we will be ready to place our base coat of asphalt.

Bond Update 10/11/12
A final planning meeting was held on Wednesday, October 10th.  The scope of the work to be done was reviewed by the architectural firm, the construction management firm, and the school bond committee.  Preliminary work has been completed and bids are being prepared.  The roof work on the C.E.C. (the old Primary building) is to be completed this fall weather permitting.  The section of the South Walnut roof that was not repaired in the original construction of that building has been worked on, but is buttoned up for the winter, and to be completed in the spring.  All major repair and construction will begin in the spring and is due for completion by November, 2013.  Thanks again to all who made this much needed project possible, we think you will be pleased with the outcome.  Updates will continue to be posted as things happen.


Bond Update
Roof bids were awarded to Modern Roofing for the South Walnut section that was not redone when the new addition was completed, that work will start August 6th, and be finished by Sept. 4th.  The primary roof and the hs/ms roof replacement was awarded to Great Lakes Systems, and work is scheduled to start in the spring and be finished by the start of school in Sept. 2013.  The Primary section is to start Sept. 4th, and work is scheduled through October, weather permitting.
