Summer 2017 Bond Work

 

As part of the community-approved bond project, the district broke ground on Phase II this June – the reconstruction of the parking lots and entranceways at the joint Sylvan Avenue Elementary School and James Wilson Young Middle School campus.

This project, which is estimated to be completed by the start of school in September, has been designed to improve traffic flow on the two campuses and enhance safety for students, families and visitors.

While the project is underway, access to both campuses will be restricted to the public. This includes the current parking lots, entranceways (both from Barrett Avenue and Sylvan Avenue) and fields (including playgrounds). All other district facilities, including the playgrounds at Blue Point and Academy Street elementary schools as well as the athletic complex at the high school, will remain open for resident use, and all are encouraged to enjoy these community resources during the summer months.

Below are several photos from the first day of construction!

Bond Update – “Building Toward the Future”

As part of the community-approved “Building Toward the Future” bond, the district is preparing to break ground on several capital improvement projects this summer.

Since all district schools will see necessary building, infrastructural and instructional upgrades as part of the bond, construction is expected to span the next 3 years. To help ensure it is completed in an efficient manner, the proposed work has been divided among several phases.

Phase I projects, which have been approved by the State Education Department, are expected to break ground this summer (beginning in early August) and include:

  • New turf fields at the high school (beginning early August; estimated completion late December)

 

  • Replacement of Blue Point Elementary School’s slate roof (beginning early August; estimated completion before start of school)

 

  • “Reskinning” the exterior of the administration building to preserve building integrity (beginning mid- to late September; estimated completion mid-fall)

 

  • Masonry repairs at the high school (beginning early August; estimated completion before start of school)

 

  • Curbing repairs at Blue Point Elementary School (beginning early August; estimated completion before start of school)

 

  • Replacement of high school corridor lockers (beginning early August; estimated completion early winter)

 

  • Replacement of interior floors in the “old wing” at the high school (beginning early August; completion before start of school)

           

The district is in the process of submitting an application to the SED for the work planned in Phase II, which includes the refurbishment of the middle school library and home and careers classrooms, as well as the revamped middle school/Sylvan Avenue Elementary School parking lot.

Updates on all projects will be provided throughout the construction process on the district’s website under the “Bond Update” tab.
