School renovations stick with the familiar
Keeping the Soule and Fisk classrooms' ceilings open rather than closing them off with tiles and grid was an option district officials had carefully considered over the past few months.
"It looks like we're going to go with dropped ceilings, not open ceilings," Delahanty said, noting that he and the committee members had discussed the topic extensively with project architects as well as with Maintenance Director Jack Messenheimer.
School Board Chairman Bernard Campbell further noted that both Soule and Fisk schools "have a very long history and are both relatively old."
"I think members of the committee felt that the concrete block has already been used in the past. It's served us well and is long lasting to withstand the rough-and-tumble use that goes with an elementary school," Delahanty said.
As early September rolls around, classes will once again be in full swing, and school officials warned there would be plenty of contractor equipment on the grounds of both schools.
