January 2022 -Elementary Updates

Happy 2022! It’s going to be a great year, building will begin on the new elementary building, we are getting closer to a state-of-the-art space for our students and our community!

January 2022 – What’s Happening On The Site 

Early- Mid January

What’s Happening? Geothermal Test Bore 

What is this for?  This is a full depth well that will provide information on the earth conductivity values at the site.  The Mechanical Engineer will use that data to confirm the well field size (well depths, number and spacing of wells.)  The test well will be a part of the permanent well field system.

What to expect? This will happen for 3 days during the first half of January. There will be a drilling-rig truck and the DPW will be assisting with soil and water handling. 

Next School Building Committee

January 25th, 2022- 6:30 PM Via Zoom. Please check district calendar for link.
