    Roof Replacement Update November 6
    Posted on 11/06/2019

    Dear Firebird families and staff:

    GOOD NEWS! Phase 1 Construction activities are nearing completion and with the favorable weather this week and next most of the exterior roof construction activities are projected to complete by Friday, Nov. 15, 2019. Minor architectural sheet metal work will continue through the end of December 2019.

    The scaffold and temporary fence on the west side of the building are scheduled to be removed during the district’s Winter Break when no students are present. The scaffold and temporary fence on the east side of the school will remain until Phase 2 construction activities are complete August 2020. Phase 2 construction activities will commence immediately after school lets out June 2020.

    Interior construction activities continue to progress with building system commissioning activities complete, cleaning activities currently occurring, and furniture move-in scheduled to begin immediately upon completion of cleaning activities. This will allow the school to re-occupy vacated classrooms on the second floor of the north wing. Rising Star Elementary School staff have requested to move back into their classrooms the week of Nov. 25, 2019, as parent conferences are scheduled for the week and this will allow staff adequate time to prepare their classrooms for the return of students on Monday, Dec. 2, 2019.

    The safety, health, and comfort of everyone using our school continues to remain a focus. If you have any questions regarding our Roof Replacement project or student, staff or community safety, please contact Mark Emelko, mmemelko@seattleschools.org, our capital project manager, or me directly.
