    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.

    The first advertisement for bids ran in today’s papers with a due date of 5/30/19.  The D-6 has been received from OSPI and the D-7 is nearly ready to submit.  The original Conditional Use Permit requires a Minor Revision for this project and the county has requested some changes to our submittal, which are in progress.

    OSPI has signaled that the D-6 answer to the D-5 submittal is about to go out. Constructability Review comments have been reviewed and incorporated into the design as applicable. Construction documents at about 95% completion were received today and will be reviewed in preparation for going out to bid on 5/1/19. An option to relocate the school to the former Alderwood MS site has been reviewed and rejected, the modernization will continue as an occupied modernization project with four phases.
