Notes From 8.29.16 SCA Meeting

Dear TNS Community,

We have come a long way in the last 8-9 weeks.  We went from a stalled work site to a bustling transformation.  Through out the summer there have been crews of 80-120 people on site daily.  Some times seven day a week, two shifts a day. They have been communicating with us regularly and though they have made assurances, in construction there are usually setbacks. In this case it is the fabrication and shipment of terracotta from California. Because of this delay the work will not be totally complete by the time school starts.  But what I can tell you is the following:

ROOF AND INTERIOR

I am very happy to report that the roof has been completed as has all the interior plaster and paint work on 3rd and 4th floors.

The final dusting and fine cleaning of classrooms and corridors is also done and the teachers were able to begin setting up their classrooms.

EXTERIOR

The masonry on the building is 99% complete. We are still waiting on 31 pieces of terra cotta to arrive to finish the project.

Prior to school opening the front and back of the school will be spruced up and the scaffolding is set to be removed at the beginning of next week and should be done by the time school starts.

They are also finishing up the window guard installation 

PLAY AREAS

As for the play areas, we have not gotten as far as we wanted to but we are close.  As it stands currently for the first few weeks of school​ we will have the same footprint of play space as we did at the end of ​last ​school year.  As soon as the terracotta installation is complete (hopefully end of September) and all the bridges are removed​,​then the South yard in its entirety will be resurfaced.  That will mean about a week without use of that yard.  But by that time the Play structure will be accessible so there will be an active play area.
