ES Knights News - May 11, 2018

Construction News from Principal Holland
Some exciting news to share! Construction for the new ES building will begin taking place the week of May 14. Parents will start seeing construction equipment on our campus this week in anticipation of the next several months. More importantly, parents should be aware that the exit to our campus will be blocked for about a month except during morning and afternoon carpool (8:00-8:30 and 3:30-4:00). Anyone visiting the campus during non-carpool hours will need to exit the campus using the right lane (of the entrance) when coming from our parking lot. Please use extreme caution when entering our campus during non-carpool hours. Again, this is only for the first month of construction.

Our builder, G.L.Wilson, is extremely experienced with building schools and understands all of the variables that come with building next to an operating school. The construction staff and moving equipment will be behind (the soon-to-be constructed) fence and never near our children. Please note that their normal procedure is that all construction staff have been background checked as safety always comes first.  Principal Holland has been involved in all meetings with the building company and has met the project manager who will be on site every day and we have confidence this will be a great partnership over the next several months! Thank you, parents, for making this dream come true so soon!
