Superintendent Manuszak reports that Phase 1 Bid Pack 1 & 2 work on the Bond includes:
1) HS Natatorium – The “dance floor” is fully assembled thus created a floor for the ceiling so this can be painted and treated now.  The rafters and the ceiling will become a light gray and we have been told by our contractor that this will be good for 15 years.  The scoreboard and new starting blocks have been ordered and once the painting is complete these can then be installed. Expected completion by the first part of August.
2) HS Roof – The light brown metal roof is now being installed.  Full installation is under way.  The expected completion date is the first part of October for this project.
3) ES Lockers – The old lockers have been removed and the new ones will be installed shortly.  This project will be completed before school begins.
4) HS Football Field Stadium Seating – The concrete has been poured for both the home and away sidelines.  We are anticipating the stadium seating to be installed sometime this week.  This project will be completed before Aug. 23 which is our first home football game.
5) HS/MS parking lots – The old parking lot material has been removed and we are now waiting for the base dirt to be delivered and can then make sure to add the new asphalt over this when ready.  All new downspouts will be connected to the storm sewer.  This project will be completed before our first home football game on August 23.
6) MS Safe Entry – Work has begun on creating a new entryway into our MS.  This project will be completed before the school year begins.
7) ES Fire Alarm System – This work has begun and it will be completed before the school year begins.
8) HS Gymnasium Floor – Work has begun on this project where the old damaged wood has been torn out and the new wood will be installed. Once this is installed the new wood along with the old floor will be completely sanded and refinished.  We expect this project to be completed before the school year begins.
9) HS/MS Gym Walls – The MS Gym Wall has been removed and the new MS Gym Curtain will be installed soon.  The HS Gym Wall has yet to be removed, but we are planning to have this done before the beginning of the school year.
