North Elementary gets new pavement
space
With the clock ticking toward the opening of the fall term, the final touches are being put on an extensive series of summer maintenance projects in the Antigo school district.

Crews from the Langlade County Highway Department were at North Elementary School this morning, laying the first course of blacktop to cap a playground improvement project.

Weather permitting, Director of Building and Grounds Tim Prunty said sod will be laid around the perimeter of the playground on Friday, just in time for the opening of the term on Tuesday.

It’s been a busy summer throughout the district, with maintenance projects pumped by the infusion of $400,000 taken from the district’s fund balance.

Roofs have been replaced at East, West, North and Mattoon elementary schools along with a section of the high school.

At Crestwood, phase 1 of an asbestos abatement project was completed and floor tile replaced, while at the high school, carpet was replaced with floor tile in six classrooms.

There’s more on the docket as well, subject to review and approval by the board of education. Potential spring projects include phase 2 of the Crestwood asbestos project and an extensive proposal; to upgrade the heating and ventilation systems in the elementary schools.

The board voted to move ahead with the projects—and earmarked the fund balance dollars—following a study by the Cooperative Educational Service Agency No. 10 that prioritized needs in district facilities.

CESA ranked the projects in terms on priorities, with the top 10 recommended projects carrying a total price tag of $1.258 million.
