It's (Almost) a Wrap

With the new school year just around the corner, the building projects are wrapping up. Our schools will be ready to welcome the students and staff for the 2015-2016 school year. When you visit the elementary schools during Back-to-School conferences in September you will most likely notice the cooler temperature in the
buildings, as well as new lighting and ceilings. These are the visible changes; however, the work this summer has been far more extensive. The heating system at both schools has been replaced and the ventilation system has been improved. This will increase efficiency and provide for better climate control throughout the year. Fire protection (sprinklers) has been installed and the exterior lighting has been replaced. At the Jr/Sr High School the heating system has been replaced. New interior and exterior lighting has been installed. In addition, interior and exterior security cameras are in the process of being installed. We are excited about the upgrades that have been made that will benefit our students, schools, and communities into the future.
