Kamloops This Week

When classes broke for the summer break in late June, the Kamloops-Thompson school district’s maintenance staff went to school.

The department had 107 projects to tackle during the summer months, 102 of which workers have completed.

From hall-flooring replacement at A.E. Perry elementary, to fire-alarm upgrades at Clearwater secondary, to paving at the district’s maintenance yard, to a rink structure upgrade at Blue River elementary, the summer months saw much work being done — the majority involving floor replacement and refinishing in myriad schools.

Still remaining to be completed: Fire-alarm panel upgrade at Juniper Ridge elementary (in progress); installation of window rollshutters at Kay Bingham elementary (in progress); electrical rewiring at South Kamloops secondary/Beattie School of the Arts (in progress); roof-top unit replacement at Summit elementary (in progress); and boiler upgrade at McGowan Park elementary (not yet started).
