WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Eighty-one local school maintenance projects have been completed this summer.
That is about half of the 169 projects taking place at Washington County Public Schools throughout the summer. It is the most maintenance projects the school system has ever budgeted for during the summer months. Completion of the projects, totaling more than $7.3 million, can take place trough October, according to Director of Maintenance and Operations Michael Peplinski.
The list of projects can change, though, Peplinski has said, and about 30 projects have been added since late June.
Summer maintenance work was discussed during a committee meeting Tuesday.
Most public schools in Washington County will receive at least some updates and construction work. Lincolnshire and Pleasant Valley elementary schools are not slated for any projects; nor are Maugansville and Pangborn elementary schools, which will be torn down this summer to make way for larger replacement schools that are scheduled to open in August.
