    Many thanks to Mr. Schilke's CAD class for putting together this video to help us visual what the new Flushing High School Field House will look like using the architectural renderings. We can't wait to see it come to reality!

    If you have driven by the high school lately you see that construction crews are working diligently on the high school site as the winter weather permits. That project is still on schedule for access to the robotics lab, pre-engineering lab, visual arts classrooms, training room, and wrestling room in the fall. The new fieldhouse with competitive gym and weight room is on track to be completed by the end of December 2019.

    The HVAC updates are scheduled to begin this summer at the high school and the Early Childhood Center, with completion anticipated this fall. The elementaries’ HVAC upgrades will follow the next summer with the substantial completion scheduled for the end of summer 2020.

    The security infrastructure improvements, which focus on enhancing our communication capabilities in emergency, will begin this summer with PA/Intercom system upgrades in all buildings.

    Our plans to provide a new home for Raider Virtual Academy through the bond has been accomplished with the purchase of the Oak Youth Center property on Oak Street from the Flushing Community Church of the Nazarene. This will allow the district to maintain its original plan to expand scheduling options for our students and allow for additional hours of operation. The administrative offices will remain in their current location and will not be relocated to the second floor of the ECC. The district is saving approximately a million dollars in bond funds through this property purchase by avoiding the renovation costs associated with moving the current administrative offices to the second floor of the ECC and renovating the administrative offices for Raider Virtual Academy. The savings gained will be channeled back to the other bond projects to maintain the original scope and aid in covering additional construction costs.

    The energy project continues on pace to be fully operational by the end of this March, weather permitting. LED lighting updates, water conservation updates, steam trap replacement, new digital control systems, and solar panel installations are nearing completion at most school sites. Seymour Elementary is the final site scheduled for the solar panel installation and that process is scheduled to begin shortly.

    During our winter break, construction crews have been busy moving forward on many projects throughout the district.

    At Elms, the frames that will hold the solar panels are now installed.

    How wonderful is it on these cold, snowy days to be thinking about the sunshine! As a part of the Tax Exempt Energy Conservation Bonds project, the solar arrays are being installed on the roof of the ECC. Crews are bundled up as they work on the preliminaries of this project. As you drive by the ECC you will see the work being done on the newer part of the building. Please be patient if you get caught in a traffic slowdown as they bring supplies from the parking lot across the street to the work site. The slight inconvenience will be well worth it when these systems become active and the district is able to save money on energy costs.

    Good news!  After a nearly three month delay waiting for the state plan approval process to be completed, our solar and facility bond projects are on course to begin soon.This phase of the project includes the pre-engineering lab, robotics lab, visual arts classrooms, wrestling room, and new competition gym.

    This past Wednesday we met with our architect, construction manager, and steering committee to review the schematic design of the high school site and renovation at the ECC.  The designs are looking good. It looks like we are getting close to a final design for the high school projects and the new administrative offices at the ECC.  We are scheduled to meet next week with the full committee to discuss final layout and finishes. We hope to break ground in the late summer.

    Following the completion of the high school site and ECC second floor design process, we will begin the design process for the HVAC upgrades, Raider Field improvements, building PA system upgrades, and Raider Virtual Academy renovations at the existing administrative offices.  The scheduled completion date barring any unforeseen circumstances is fall of 2019-20.

    The snow day was put to good use. Even though school was canceled, it was an opportunity for staff to gather and share their "wish" list with the Kingscott designers. Physical Education, Art, Robotics, and CAD representatives gave their input for design elements in their area.
