WSD Summer Work Crew Preparing Schools for 2012-2013 School Year

Members of the Washougal School District summer work crew are busy preparing the schools for the new school year.  Workers are restriping the parking lots, repainting the interior hallways of most schools, and power washing the outsides of almost all buildings.  In addition, the gym floors in each building are being buffed and finished, wood chips are being put down under play areas, and carpets are being cleaned in many areas. 

Some major projects underway this summer include adding an auxiliary pump in the well that provides water to Cape Horn-Skye and Canyon Creek, installing electric basketball hoop lifts at Jemtegaard, replacing the gravel in the parking lot at Excelsior, and replacement of the worn out wood floor in the main gym at Washougal High School.  Swing by the schools and take a look, the buildings are cleaned up and getting ready for students to come back in September!
