It is anticipated that the roofing work will be completed by the start of school in August 2018.

July 31st, 2017 – Bertha Barber Elementary School

Work is moving at a fast pace at Bertha Barber in preparation for the upcoming year. Some minor delays in delivery of some pieces of equipment and tight working conditions have slowed the progress of completion slightly at the building, but all is still on track to be operational on the first day of school on August 10th!! But the building is cool with the new chiller running! Final connections are being made for the new fire sprinkler system and will be completed this week. Some minor finish work will remain that first week of school, but all work will be completed after school hours and will not affect students and staff.
