Eastern Pulaski School Board Updated on Summer Projects


The Eastern Pulaski School Corporation is making some progress on its summer projects.

Locker repainting was underway, by the time of Monday’s school board meeting. “Obviously, if you could smell and see, the lockers have started,” Superintendent Dan Foster told board members. “They started Saturday. They’ll move upstairs tomorrow, and they’ll be done by Friday, probably. I mean, they’ve knocked these out quickly.”

Foster added that roughly 60 percent of the flooring projects are done. He said work on the stage floor was set to start today. Once that’s done, they’ll put the finishing touches on the floor in the high school gym. Floor work will move to the elementary gym next week. Roof work will also take place there, in September.

Foster said exterior lighting upgrades are about 70-percent done. “The wooden poles that we’re pulling out and redoing those lights and stuff, that’s what they were supposed to be doing last week, but they had a problem with their truck,” he explained. “So it sounds like, depending on weather, that they’ll be back sometime this week to pull them and then start forming the concrete. So that should be very soon.”

Upgrades to freezers in the elementary school kitchen are just about done. Now, freezers at the middle/high school will be upgraded.

Foster said that a new storage facility is about 80 percent complete. He pointed out that the corporation reused some existing lighting fixtures for the new facility.

Most of those projects are being done with money left over from the recent extensive renovation project.
