Project Updates:

  1. All classrooms had NEW Brightlink projectors installed on Friday; these projectors replace units that are 10 years old now and are much more energy efficient.
  2. All classrooms will have NEW flooring installed over the summer – the existing carpets are 30 years old!
  3. Playground structure on the main yard remains closed for safety reasons; the structure requires significant and costly repairs; we hope to have this work completed before this school year ends.
  4. The school roof is scheduled for replacement. We do not yet have a timeline but hope this will be completed before September 2019.

A short time ago we had a fire alarm pull station engaged in the YMCA Child Care area of the school.

All students evacuated the building as is our protocol. All students are back in the building and are safe.
