Phase one of the district’s capital project is going well, making our schools safer and more secure. Among the changes: state-of-the-art, energy-efficient boilers and related piping in the high school and an upgraded fire alarm system in the elementary school.
The high school boilers replace older ones that were prone to breakdown and beyond safe repair. The elementary fire alarm system has been upgraded, including its electrical panels and main controls, bells and strobe lights.
Plumbing upgrades to the SCS campus include preparation for a new water main and related valve work, and wiring updates for sump pumps for ground water control in the elementary school.
Work has also begun on in the high school basement, where a new hallway will span the length of the original building.
Safety and security are paramount at SCS. In both schools, the public address and security systems are also being upgraded. A new Voice Over Internet Protocol phone system connects the entire campus with an enhanced emergency call system, in addition to providing needed technological updates.
Asbestos abatement related to phase one has been safely completed, on time and under budget.
Plans for phase two of the project are being submitted to the State Education Department for approval, with work expected to begin this winter.
