New Construction

Construction on the new Oak Harbor Intermediate School is rolling along and on-track. Soil testing has come back positive, and the building pad is nearly completed. The footer for the building is now being poured (see photo below).


-After brainstorming ways to save it, the pavilion on the playground had to be removed. Moving the pavilion was cost-prohibitive. It was in the way of the main entrance to the new building.

-A new natural gas line has been installed. The new line will feed the existing RC Waters and the new Oak Harbor Intermediate School. The new gas line will provide for a single-shut off in the case of an emergency on the campus.

-The dug-out area to the north of Rocket Road that you may have noticed will be a retention pond.

-The administration meets bi-weekly with Midwest Contracting and our architect, Garmann-Miller. Please see attached for the latest "field report" for the latest construction details.


Other Items

-The transformation of the RC Waters Teachers lounge into a 2nd Serving Line/Kitchen Area is about 90% complete. We are still awaiting delivery of new equipment such as warming ovens. This second serving line was created to feed students from the new Oak Harbor Intermediate School once it is complete.

-New HVAC units for RC Waters rooms that were not completed over the summer have arrived and are being installed!


Road Shift


-Work is beginning on the parking lot for the new building. This work requires the movement of the construction fence shown in this photo below. The gravel road connecting the concrete part of Rocket Road with the West side of RC Waters will be shifted about 10-15 feet to the west (or to the right in the photo below). The light pole and signage shown in the photo will be moved. This shift will happen in the next few days. The road will remain open and should not cause any disruption to traffic flow, but we wanted you to be aware.
