May 25, 2017:
Mapleton School District received two Seismic Rehabilitation Grants totally $2.9 million!
Mapleton Elementary School has received a $1.4 million Seismic Grant and Mapleton High School has received a $1.5 million Seismic Grant. These funds will be used, in addition to the bond funds, to upgrade our facilities to ensure they are seismically safe for our students. This will also allow them to be a community gathering place in case of a natural disaster.
Construction on the Elementary school is scheduled to begin on June 16, 2017 and be completed on November 1, 2017. We have enough structural information on the Elementary School that we are able to remain on schedule while incorporating the seismic improvements allowed through the grant. Even though construction will be continuing during the school year, it will not impact our student’s education.
Construction on the High School WAS also scheduled to begin on June 1, 2017. However, due to the additional seismic grant award, the engineer needs to gather additional structural information in order to include the seismic improvements allowed through the grant in our construction projects. Therefore, construction at the High School will begin in mid-December 2017 and is scheduled to be completed in late August of 2018.
Please note that community use of the facilities during construction will not be allowed. This is for safety and security purposes. However, once construction is completed, our facilities will once again be open for community use!
