September 22, 2015 MS-HS Project

The MS-HS project is almost to substantial completion.  All expected areas were ready for the start of school on September 8.  In can’t be stressed enough how meeting this deadline would not have been possible without the extra efforts of many staff members.  The last weeks of summer were hectic, but ultimately the main office, lobby, new bathrooms, conference room, fitness center, remodeled classrooms, and parking lot were functional for the first day.  Despite a torrential downpour and a village power outage, the first day was success.  The final LMC construction and installation of bookshelves was completed during the first week of school.  The library and LMC learning areas are now being used by students.

To reach substantial completion the following items still need to be completed:

  • Aluminum panels and soffit installation at the front of the school.
  • Stairwell flooring
  • Column coverings in the main lobby
  • School Store casework completion
  • Final Punchlist Items.

Mrs. Butzler and I have started to plan a community celebration.  The program will include a short dedication ceremony and tours of the high school.   We feel it is important that the project is 100% complete prior to this ceremony.
