Spring Break offers early start on summer work at schools

Floor removal, electrical work happen during break

Six district schools - Mountain View, North Mor, North Star, Stukey, Westview and Woodglenn elementaries - will receive substantial bond improvement projects over the summer. 

However, while the summer months would seem to offer ample time for each school to undergo millions of dollars of renovations, the timeframe between when students end their school year (May 23) and when staff begins to return to buildings (late July/early August) is relatively small.

That means the contractors in charge of the building renovations look for any opportunity to get a jump start on the construction process. Spring Break offered one of those opportunities with buildings empty for the week. That made the schools a hub of activity during the normally quiet week.

  • At Stukey, flooring was removed in the gym and music areas in anticipation of new flooring to be installed this summer. Low-voltage, above ceiling cabling work also took place.
  • At North Star and Woodglen elementaries, electricians worked on electrical upgrades to both buildings as well as some low-voltage, above ceiling cabling work.
  • At Mountain View, North Mor and Westview, low-voltage, above ceiling cabling work took place.
