Elementary #21 construction continues to make strides. The fence posts for the athletic field were installed in July and the asphalt treated base for the bus loop will be finished by August 2. Horizontal drilling commenced, which will connect water pipes to the school. This method is being used because of the proximity to the neighboring residential community.
Interior work including sheet rock, plumbing and ductwork continues, as does exterior masonry and window installations.
The District continues to seek input from students, staff, families and community members for the District’s newest elementary school. Name ideas can be submitted through Sept. 27, 2019. A committee will then narrow the selection, ask for additional community input, further narrow choices and then submit a few ideas for board approval.
Construction crews have also been hard at work at the Skyview/Canyon Creek project during July. Demolition of walls between the new additions and existing buildings is finished. Work has started on the footings and foundation for the Canyon Creek gym expansion, which will add about 700 square feet to the existing space. Framing for the covered play area at Skyview is complete.
The team is making progress on the expanded kitchen and cafeteria area at Skyview. The electrical rough ins are installed, the floor has been transformed so it is all one level, and framing for the kitchen addition is complete.
Both Skyview and Canyon Creek have seen had a lot of work at the entryway of their campuses to improve curbs, gutters and sidewalks, which will help with circulation and pedestrian safety. August will also be a busy month for the crews as they prepare the buildings for students to return in September.
