As the school year begins there are many aspects of the construction phases that will be completed. However, one phase is just beginning which is quite noticeable, and we felt it was important to address. The exterior remodel for the old high school is just underway and the initial phase of that is the removal of the old siding which is cement board that is assumed to contain asbestos. The company doing the removal stated that there is little to no asbestos release expected and that the workers have elected to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE’s) only as a precautionary step due to occupational exposure of working with asbestos all the time. The district wants to ensure with the community that our students and staff are safe during this process and to please have you call if you have any questions. The removal of the majority of the cement board siding should be completed before school starts. Access to the gym for practices and games will be restricted to areas not affected by the siding removal process. The removal plan has been developed and approved by the district’s licensed consultants and the project is being carried out by Id1, a local, licensed asbestos contractor.
The School hours will be changing for the 2014-15 school year:
First Bell: 8:16am
Student Dismissal: 3:27pm
