Projects Keep ALSD Moving Throughout The Year

Projects Keep ALSD Moving Throughout The Year

 

A plethora of projects made possible through the Measure H general obligation bond funding, as well as other maintenance and improvement projects, kept Brian Salsgiver, the Alta Loma School District’s director of maintenance and operations, and his team busy throughout the summer.

 

The seemingly endless list of facility and equipment undertakings at every ALSD site hasn’t stopped, with the bond projects taking center stage.

 

“We have been active in utilizing Measure H Bond funds,” said ALSD Associate Superintendent Steve Thomas. “In the past two years, we have added an electronic door locking system, increased our internet bandwidth and replaced phone systems at all 10 schools. In addition, all playgrounds at our elementary schools have been refurbished.”

 

The new 11,500-square-foot permanent classroom building at Deer Canyon Elementary School is its final stage of construction and is scheduled to open later this fall or after the first of the year, depending on a schedule that is least disruptive to normal school operations.

 

Bond-funded major renovation and modernization projects have been the focus at Alta Loma and Vineyard junior high schools. The band and ASB room renovations at Alta Loma Junior High were recently completed, while work on Vineyard offices and performance room should be completed by the end of September.

 

A new lunch shade structure was completed at Victoria Groves Elementary School that expanded the outside eating area for students.

 

An assortment of projects, including new signage, fencing, painting, flooring, wall coverings, lunch tables, lighting and cabinetry, were completed or are in process at various schools, along with parking lot, electrical, plumbing, kitchen and restroom improvements and roof repairs.

 

Just ahead, classrooms at all schools will be updated with “future-ready” furniture and modern instructional technology.

 

They also will have new air conditioning and heating units and other infrastructure work to improve student learning environments.
