Facilities and Maintenance News

October 6, 2011

Greetings from the Facilities/Maintenance Department. Its’ been a very busy summer for us with many projects completed and still in the works. The new Athletic Field & Track has been getting a great deal of use and enjoyment by the students and staff. This fall we will be reseeding the field again and improving it with the irrigation system which should be operational by the second week in October.
The black chain link fence in the front yard area will be removed soon, and this area will be used as an alternate athletic field while we reseed the main field.

We are just finishing up a major drainage project around the Schoolhouse building that will give us a dry, usable basement area. October 5th we will begin excavation of the area next to the Clinician’s Building to eliminate the water problems we have had in that basement. The old retaining wall that collapsed years ago will be removed, and a new stone block wall will be installed, as well as new steps with improved lighting for safety. The area around the Greenhouse will be cleared out and new plantings added as we did on the side of the Schoolhouse.  The group homes will also be getting a long needed facelift this fall, and even more improvements next Spring. There has been a great deal of attention needed by our properties, and although much has been accomplished, much more still needs to be done.
