    The foundation walls for the new building continue and underground rough-in has begun.  Work has started on the new shear wall foundations in building A.  Gravel is being placed to harden the site on the south side to enable construction access during the rainy season.

    School started on 9/4/19, as scheduled, with a slight modification to the parking lot to accommodate construction activities for the new building and fencing to separate the construction areas from the school zone.  The library has been divided enabling the addition of a class room there and two portables were added over the summer.  These new spaces, along with some other minor changes, and the reduction in enrollment due to boundary changes with the opening of Tambark Creek ES, allowed us to empty building A for this phase of the project.  Selective demolition for building A is nearly complete.  Footings for the new office/library building have been poured and foundation walls are being framed and readied for concrete.

    The school is nearly ready for students.  Final inspections on the two new portables are schedule for next Tuesday and some fencing to define the construction areas is being placed.  The A Building has been emptied and selective demolition is underway.  The sitework in the area of the new building has been completed and preparations for building foundations are underway.  The school will open with a slight alteration to the parking lot to reroute the traffic loop just a bit away from the construction of the new building.  Some other operational changes will be in place to accommodate the loss of the East courtyard due to construction.

    The school board authorized award of the construction contract to Edifice GC, Inc.  The contract is being prepared for signing and the remaining steps are underway to get started!  The school is prepared for the moves that must take place to rearrange the school so the A building can be emptied so it can be modernized.  Movers will arrive on 7/1/19 to move furniture and contents to support this plan.

    The team has been preparing documents for the next steps following the expected authorization by the board on 6/18/19 to award the bid. This includes the OSPI D-9 form that will be followed by the D-10, allowing the district to sign the contract with the general contractor. The school is preparing for the moves necessary to empty the A building at the start of the project and a moving company has been secured.

    The OSPI D-7 form was submitted and the D-8 subsequently issued, authorizing the opening of bids for the project.  Four bids were received 5/30/19 with an apparent low bidder that is close to the project budget.  Due diligence is underway for this apparent low bidder and if it is positive, the board will be asked to award the bid during their regular meeting on 6/18/19.  Construction is anticipated to begin in July, as scheduled.

    Two pre-bid walk-through meetings were conducted and a total of 10 general contractors attended.  This qualifies these ten to submit a bid for the project, due on 5/30/19.  One addendum has been issued to date.  The D-7 is in final review prior to be submitted.
