MOUNTAIN VIEW—The construction of the K-8 building is on schedule and there was “really great progress (on the paving) this week,” according to Todd McCowin, Wember.
At the board’s regular meeting Tuesday in Mountain View, McCowin said the pavement on the front part of the project should be completed this fall. On Monday, 600 tons were laid, and the goal was for 1,000 tons on Tuesday. The paving company was running 27 trucks so a lot was accomplished. However, some of Tuesday’s work would probably go into Wednesday due to unforeseen circumstances, McCowin said.
As for issues on the ground with water created by the recent heavy storm, McCowin said Sandstrom and Associates had done a good job with the plans and the storm sewer was working good.
The steel frames in the administrative section of the building were going up, McCowin said, and there was a move to cover the windows in plastic to retain heat for interior work to continue when the weather was colder.
A big push, according to McCowin, was to get the roofing completed on the sections that are up so there would be no problem with having to shovel snow to roof.
Mountain View middle school principal Lane Stratton reported on the changes in classification for athletics as approved by the fall Wyoming High School Activities Association meeting. Stratton said, “There is a lot going on,” in reference to the changes.
The volleyball season was extended one week so districts wouldn’t have to schedules so many games each week. In addition, the basketball and wrestling seasons were shortened one week.
The only reclassification changes for all sports, except football, are in 3A and 2A. Lovell will move up to 3A and Lyman will move down to 2A due to the latest average daily membership numbers.
