I wanted to send out some information to everyone regarding the school and updates we have accomplished over the past year. As many of you know, in the spring of 2021, you all passed a $1,506,100 bond issue to do some repair work at the school and to build a bus garage. The school created a wish list of things that we were hoping to accomplish with the money. I want to give everyone a run down on how the money has been spent so far. We put a roof coating on the majority of the school roof to seal up leaks. This cost us $272,000. The part of the roof we did not coat had been replaced the year before. We upgraded our main entrance doors at a cost of $202,900. This was long overdue and provides even more security for our buildings. We upgraded and added keyless entrances to all outside doors at a cost of $26,087. We did a whole school lighting upgrade to LED lighting at a cost of $220,424. We purchased a van to be used by the school to transport students to the alt school and for other uses of the school at a cost of $28,895. We purchased a school maintenance truck at a cost of $21,000. We purchased playground borders to replace the pvc pipe at a cost of $7,265.50. We have obligated $45,000 to help PTO in purchasing new playground equipment. We have obligated $60,000 to add to Covid money we received to purchase a new school bus. We are hoping to get the new bus in December. At present time all of these costs add up to $883,571.50. That leaves us with a balance of $622,528.50 As you may have noticed, I did not mention bus garage in all of that. We put out for bids for the bus garage last spring. The initial bids came back over $900,000. We rejected this bid. We then reworked the bid plans and rebid it again this past spring. The bids came back at $690,000. We again rejected these bids. We are once again working on new bid plans and hope to have bid documents out for bidding in the next month or two. Other things that were on our wish list included: new touchless faucets and flush valves (we used Covid money to install them), new school wide water softener system (again we used Covid money to install this), a new ice machine for the kitchen ( we used food service money to purchase this), Water drainage improvements (Mr. Raines, summer workers and Brock Cato were able to fix some of these and will hopefully next summer be able to finish them), New HVAC systems (purchased with Covid money). Other items that are at present time on hold until we see where we are with money include a new school sign and asphalting of the elementary parking lot. I am very thankful for all the support that the Advance R-4 community provides to the school. Great things are happening at Advance R-4. If you have any question, please call me at the school. I would be happy to discuss them with you.
