Timing: June 2017- December 2017

• School office reconfiguration

Timing: June -August 2018

Monta Loma Elementary School's construction began this summer. Classroom modernization is finishing up. The Multi-Use Room (MUR) expansion will continue through December 2017. During the Summer of 2018, roofing and renovation of the staff and office areas will be completed.

What’s happening now
The expansion of the MUR continues to allow for 225 students to eat or 450 students to attend assemblies at one time. Plans also include improvements to food service and increased storage capacity. Students’ meals will be served from the staff room, and students will eat at the picnic tables or in their classrooms on rainy days until we are back in the MUR in December 2017. The MUR expansion project began in May 2017.

Current work is concentrated on the MUR area, which is fenced off from students. Neighbors may notice trucks delivering materials to the MUR construction site.

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 fences surrounding the zone will have green fabric screens on them to help contain dust. The equipment used on the site and dust control measures we employ comply with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District standards.

This summer, crews demolished two pods, remodeled student restrooms, added two portable buildings, and installed a new fire loop.

Classrooms were modernized with technology upgrades, new teaching walls, and fire alarm replacements. All classrooms received new paint, floor tiles, and/or carpeting. Sliding glass doors were replaced with a wall of windows. Some restrooms were upgraded to improve accessibility. The parking lots and student drop off zone also were improved, including an expanded bus loop.

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. With construction comes frustrations and inconveniences. We appreciate your support and understanding as we take one step closer to improving each of our schools for our students, staff and community.
