Sabetha Elementary School: New addition to be turned over by Christmas break
As of Friday, Dec. 9, according to Lonny Pierce, Site Superintendent of the USD 113 Construction/Remodel Project at the Sabetha Elementary School (SES), AHRS is currently in the finishing stages of constructing the new addition to SES.
Due to AHRS finally receiving all the missing materials needed to finish the project, AHRS plans to finish construction and turn the new addition over to the school by Christmas break, according to Pierce.
Some of the missing materials included ones needed to install new windows through the original portion of the building. Pierce said AHRS workers installed new frames and glass in one half of the south wing a few weeks ago, and they plan to start installing the rest of the frames Monday, Dec. 19. Pierce believes that they should be finished with the frames by early January, weather permitting.
During the Prairie Hills USD No. 113 Board of Education meeting on Monday, Dec. 12, Superintendent Todd Evans let the board members know that one of two rooftop units received for SES was the wrong model, and they are waiting for the correct model to be delivered.
Evans also said the project at Axtell will be completed during winter break.
