The 18-month project includes classroom modernization and a new multi-use room. The classroom modernization, administration office reconfiguration, and expansion of one kindergarten classroom will be completed by the end of summer 2018. The modernization and renovation of the existing multi-use room into the new library and two special education classrooms will start in Summer 2018 and be complete by winter 2018. Portable classrooms are on the blacktop area to serve as temporary classroom space during construction.

Happening now
The construction fence is up and work will be concentrated behind the fence on the MUR. Over the 2017-18 school year, work will happen on the creation of the MUR site pad, digging of the footings, installation of foundations, and hanging of steel. The walls and roof will go up during the school year.

Work is planned for weekdays, from 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. At this time, weekend work is not planned, but could occur near construction deadlines. There will be truck traffic coming and going on Mercy doing dirt offhaul in the fall and transporting heavy equipment and delivering steel this winter.

Dust may occur, and the District will follow procedures and best practices to reduce as much as possible any potential disruptions. The District will use the standard construction practice of watering down soil as it becomes dry to reduce dust. The equipment used on the site and dust control measures we employ comply with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District standards. Additionally, there is a green fabric screen applied to the fence to reduce the movement of dust across the site.

As you know, the District has worked very hard over the years to do the work, funded by Measure G, to make facilities improvements and renovations at every school a reality. The results will be amazing. There will be new and updated classrooms, libraries and MURs. However, construction requires extra accommodations. We appreciate your support and understanding as we take one step closer to improving each of our schools for our students, staff and community.
