BOONVILLE — The Adirondack school district’s capital project construction, which this summer has included the middle school/high school complex among the sites, will not disrupt students’ return to school next month for the 2019-20 year, says a district official.
The locations “will be ready and there will not be disruptions to the students,” district Director of Facilities Cameron Teachout said Tuesday when asked whether the middle school and athletic field would be ready for the new school year in light of the work. “The middle school will be used without disruption for the 2019-20 school year,” said Teachout.
The work this summer involves the first phase of a two-phase overall project, Teachout said. The initial phase “addresses the overall building envelope at the high school/middle school complex with masonry work and roofing replacement,” he noted.
At the middle school and athletic field, among the work categories are “roofing, masonry, exterior doors and a new synthetic turf field and resilient track,” Teachout commented.
Adirondack district voters in May 2018 approved an approximately $20.7 million capital project that called for energy-efficiency improvements and mechanical upgrades in all buildings; safety and security upgrades; a pool renovation at the high school/middle school complex; and technology-related upgrades for educational facilities. The majority of the work is to be at the high school school/middle school complex, but there will be upgrades and improvements at each building, the district has said.
Other school buildings in the district include Boonville and West Leyden elementary schools.
