Dear Parents, Students, Teachers, Support Staff, and Community Members,
As some of the major improvements to our facilities come to a completion this spring, I would like to thank the teachers, support staff, parents, students, and community members for their patience during this process.
I am sure as you walked into the middle and high school gyms; you noticed the new lighting in the facilities. What you may not have noticed is the new boilers in both the middle and high schools. You may also not have noticed that roofs were replaced on the south side of the high school and over the middle school gym and locker room.
The high school also received new uninvents, electrical upgrades, two roof top units for heating and cooling, a water softening system, many interior lighting upgrades, as well as the west wing of the building receiving ventilation improvements. Also at the high school, the electrical conduit and heating pipes were moved above ground for easier repairs. The middle school received lighting upgrades and replaced its elevator. Both Primary and Intermediate buildings also received lighting upgrades. The athletic field house received heating system upgrades and lighting improvements. The track at the stadium was resurfaced, and a pavilion was built at the Bowen Road soccer fields. Finally, working with the city of Mantua, we will eliminate the pump house at the middle school.
Not only will these improvements make our schools better facilities to learn, but our buildings have become more energy efficient and easier to maintain. This will result in savings in energy, maintenance upkeep, and in labor time.
We will continue to look for ways to improve our facilities and at the same time investigate ways to become more efficient as an organization.
Thank you and as always it is a great day to be a Red Devil!
David M. Toth
