Alice Deal Middle School Modernization Update
Prepared by: Heery International, Inc.
August 22, 2007
Heery has been working on site for approximately six weeks now and the building and sitework are in full swing. The 1st phase of this project includes construction of the new gymnasium, new cafeteria and the renovation of Area 3A (western half of the central building) and is scheduled to be completed by Spring Break of 2008. Much of the work thus far has been asbestos/lead abatement and demolition. The northwest addition has been demolished to make way for the new cafeteria and tree clearing is underway on the rest of the site. The selective demolition of Area 3A is nearly completed and new construction will begin in approximately 45-60 days. This area will house new classrooms, restrooms and the main administrative office.
Temporary partitions have been installed on each level to separate the students and staff from the construction areas while still allowing access to the West wing. These partitions also help keep the dust and noise to a minimum. Air quality testing was performed throughout the building by DCPS on August 20, 2007 and the air quality was satisfactory and contained no asbestos. Fencing has been installed around the building and site to enclose construction activities in the rear of the building while maintaining safe egress from all occupied areas within the building.
One of the largest areas of work thus far has been the construction of 5 new temporary classrooms. These new rooms are located in the old boy’s gym on the 3rd floor of the east wing and will be ready for occupancy when the students return next week.
From the Physical Education Department
The middle school transition is well underway and we look forward toproviding a quality physical education and health program again thisyear! In doing so, there are a few changes that we would like to make
1. All students will be required to wear a school gym uniform in orderto participate in class every day. All of the incoming seventh grade
students and new eighth grade students must purchase a uniform at the
the Labor Day Weekend. Returning eighth grade students will have the option of purchasing the new uniform or wearing their uniform fromlast school year. In the event that your child looses a shirt orshorts, uniform pieces will be available for purchase separately. The cost of the shorts is $13.00, the shirt if $7.00.
2.This year, Physical Education and Health will be an 18-week course
rather than a year-long course. Therefore, your child will attendclass every day of the week for 18 weeks.
3. Fitness Testing will still take place the first 2 weeks of classtime set aside for the orientation and pre-test. The post-test willtake place during the final 2 weeks of the semester. Each student will have a fitness card to record the data.
4. Health classes will take place during the 18-week period of classes. Students should have a section in their binder dedicated toHealth.Once again, we welcome all of our students to Alice Deal Middle Schooland look forward to a year of good health and lots of physical activity.
