It’s Back to School Time!
By Superintendent Wayne Weber
I hope everyone is enjoying our beautiful August weather and the remaining days of summer. We are eager to welcome all of our students on Tuesday, September 4, for the first day of the 2018-2019 school year.
Summer is always a busy time for our staff with critical building improvements facilitated by our incredible team of maintenance and custodial staff. Each summer, our custodians perform a deep cleaning of each of our schools to ensure that our buildings are looking their best when students walk in on the first day. When you see our school custodians, please take a moment to thank them for their tremendous efforts.
This summer, our major maintenance project was continuing the energy efficiency upgrade work to all four campuses which began last summer. Some of that work can be seen, like the new windows at Rosendale Primary and the new chiller unit at Laconia High School, while other improvements will be felt throughout the year with greatly improved air exchange and temperature control capabilities in all buildings.
Work like that mentioned above has been happening in schools each summer since before I was a student. Not much has changed over the years when it comes to cleaning, painting, and waxing. What has changed dramatically over the past decade is the need to address school safety and student mental health.
