I wanted to provide you with a few updates as we have now entered August. The front office will officially be open on Monday, August 4th if you have any questions or need to drop off registration paperwork.
The parking lots will be closed on Monday as there will be a crew working out there. If you do need to stop by the school, you will need to park on the street. As I'm sure many of you have noticed, there are still some construction projects happening around the school. The most obvious is the roof work, which is scheduled to be completed over the next couple weeks. Additionally, Patton is scheduled to have asbestos abatement work done. Below is some information from Michael Brown, the facilities director for the district:
"Asbestos abatement work is scheduled in various areas of Patton School this summer to facilitate renovation work. The works is scheduled to start on August 11, 2014 and be completed by August 19, 2014.
The work will be completed by Kinsale Contracting Group, Inc, professional asbestos abatement contractor that is licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health. School District #25 has also retained an independent third party environment consulting firm, ENVIRON International Corporation to oversee the project, conduct daily air sampling, and ensure that the work is performed in the accordance with applicable rules and regulations. A representative of ENVIRON will be on-site full time, monitoring the asbestos contractor's removal operation.
During the removal process, the regulations of the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be followed. The asbestos abatement areas will be cordoned off physically from the remainder of the building and warning signs will be posted.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience with this anticipated project. If you have any questions or require additional information, please feel free to contact me.
I look forward to seeing everyone, and hope that the next few weeks of summer are great for you and your family.
