Renovations to Water Damaged Classrooms Continue at Middle School

Superintendent James Heinegg issued a letter last week to update parents, staff about the renovations to classrooms that have been closed since mid-December.

Superintendent James Heinegg estimates the renovation of five Grover Cleveland Middle School classrooms that closed in mid-December due to water damage will be completed within three weeks. 

Construction crews renovated the five classrooms during the winter recess, said Heinegg in a letter issued Thursday to parents and staff. On Dec. 16, a water coil in a heating unit, known as a univent, located in a third-floor classroom ruptured before school opened. The water leaked into that classroom and four addition classrooms.  

In the letter issued on Jan. 2, Heinegg said that the first phase of the project, which includes removing damage furniture and other materials has been completed. 

A new floor was installed in Room 106 during the holiday break and the room is now ready for use, according to Heinegg. 

The superintendent estimated that the renovations to the remaining four classrooms will take up to three weeks. 

In addition, an environmental consultant has conducted periodic testing of air samples, among other assessments, during the renovations to ensure the school and classrooms are safe, according to the letter.
