Construction Updates
July 15, 2022
Curé Families:

Your generous donations to the fund-a-need were indeed needed as you can see in the photos below.  Matt Rocca, Director of Facilities, and his crew have been hard at work making your donations a reality. We can't wait for you to see the "after" pictures! Stay tuned! Thank you!

HVAC Systems

  • Coils in the hallways and the old unit ventilators have been removed.
  • New HVAC ventilators have arrived and have been installed successfully. 
  • The new louver system allows for removable and regular cleaning  
  • The more efficient systems utilize UV light. 
  • The units will be able to switch from heat and cold automatically while also bringing in fresh air from the outside. 
  • This will provide better air quality and a more comfortable learning environment. 

On a light hearted note the crew found some interesting items in the old units including but not limited to:

  • yardsticks “probably from the nuns”
  • 1975 baseball cards that is worth about $.60
  • a $20 check from 1984
  • a demerit card for a boy named Pat, who never gave it to his parents (if you know Pat, he owes us a detention) 
  • Halloween decorations
  • photos of a family from the 90s 
  • numerous crayons and pencils

Cafeteria and Kitchen

  • All of the abatement of the asbestos floor tiles from when the school was built in 1961 has been removed from the cafeteria and kitchen.  
  • The new epoxy floor and the freshly painted walls in the kitchen and cafeteria have transformed the look of the area. 
  • New appliances will be installed for the kitchen.

Safety and Security

  • New security cameras were installed
  • New door fobs, with alarms if propped open, will be installed on numerous doors
  • GoGuardian was purchased for technology safety and monitoring
  • We continue working with Kenton Brothers Security on a safety review 

Other items around campus

  • We will be sealing and re-striping the parking lot at the end of July. 
  • Matt has completed all painting so that every room in and out of the building has been repainted since 2020!  
  • The PAC gym floor is being refinished to a brilliant shine
