Repair Work at VIT Elementary

Construction Update: As you may have noticed, there has been extensive repair work undertaken at the elementary building this summer. Several thousand bricks have been removed and replaced due to water damage. New tile floors have been installed in the building as well. The new exterior will help to reduce the effects of moisture inside the building, as well as, protect the exterior from outside water damage in the future. The new tile flooring replaced carpet that had a well used and longer than anticipated lifetime. The tile floors will also reduce the effect of moisture in the building and, hopefully, lessen issues for those with allergies. Carpet is notorious for holding allergens regardless of how often they are vacuumed or cleaned. Also, new exterior doors will be installed soon in the elementary building. Also, at the high school, our maintenance director and custodians built a flower box over a problem area of old broken bricks and concrete. The flower box (shown below) is a great visual improvement. "Thanks" to Charlie, Carol, and Bob. There is still a little bit of work to complete and then some repairs to be made to the school yard and playground. We are hoping that all repairs will be completed before the start of school.
