District 2 Trustees Updated on Construction Projects

A project to replace boilers at Sheridan High School is on track to be let for bid after the first of the year.

But some other projects at schools in Sheridan are on hold pending action by Wyoming legislators. Trustees of Sheridan County School District 2 received updates on the district's capital construction projects at their meeting earlier this week.

Mathers Heuck, the district's director of facilities, safety and logistics, said the high school boiler replacement project has been changed to include an upgrade to the air conditioning system in the Network Operation Center building.

Heuck said plans for repair of major components in the high school science wing and at Sagebrush Elementary School are on hold until, and if, the Legislature approves the proposed budget for Wyoming's School Facilities Commission.

Turning to other projects, he said design continues for district-wide security projects. Nearly 100 doors to buildings in the district will be brought up to common hardware and software standards, and A-phones will be installed to allow staff to talk to visitors in the vestibule before the visitors are allowed access to buildings.

Heuck said a portion of the parking lot at the bus barn will be regraded and paved this spring to alleviate a problem of flooding of offices at the barn. He said the roof of the barn is also leaking, but rather than replacing the roof, he said the district will probably apply a product to the roof to seal the leak.

Heuck said other projects include general upgrades to the Early Building at Sheridan Junior High School, resurfacing of the high school tennis court and track, and roofing projects at Highland Park Elementary School, the junior high and high schools.
