As previously mentioned, construction across the SCA has been unpaused which includes the planned project at PS87.
While we did not expect any work to begin imminently, we were presented with the opportunity to have the general contractor do demolition work on the old boiler in the basement over Spring Break. While this does not fall within the requisite 2 week notice window, we did not want to pass up the opportunity to have some work done and move this project forward while the building is unoccupied.
There will be NO asbestos abatement during this time, it is strictly boiler room mechanical and electrical demolition. We have resumed bi-weekly meetings with the School Construction Authority (SCA) and will have our next meeting in 2 weeks just after Spring break. No other work is planned to take place during break.
We will continue to update you on a regular basis to ensure that all parents are apprised of the next steps and plans.
