BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- The Briarcliff Manor school district has announced an update for its capital projects.
Phase II of an ongoing project will continue this summer at the middle school-high school campus with the completion of the track by mid-July and the multipurpose synthetic turf baseball and field hockey fields by Labor Day.
Reconstruction of the lower soccer field at this campus will occur after the fall school soccer season. The athletic field at Todd Elementary School will be reconstructed in the summer of 2015. In addition, the Todd mural project is slated for the 2014-15 school year. All MS/HS athletic fields are closed to the public through the end of August due to this construction.
Todd Elementary crawl space work will occur in the crawl space beneath the kindergarten to second grade space, or the old wing, of Todd. Insulation that contains asbestos will be completely removed from pipes as well as any debris that may have fallen to the ground. This bid has been awarded, with work expected to begin in late July or early August through Friday, Aug. 22. The reinsulation of these pipes will occur primarily after hours and on weekends.
The softball field of the middle/high school campus was completed to required specifications last fall and hosted numerous softball and Little League games this spring. Prescribed maintenance and monitoring of the field will continue. The practice field project is scheduled to be under construction this upcoming summer.
The safety and security project, which was approved as part of the 2014-15 budget, will soon be submitted to the state Education Department for approval. Work items included in this project are the upgrade of main entrance doors, construction of vestibules and greeter stations, and related technological updates.
